Information for Language Immersion Pre-K Families

Pre-K Orientation and Carver-Lyon Open House

On August 19 we will hold our annual Pre-K Orientation and Open House.  Pre-K Orientation will take place from 5:00-5:30 in the Multipurpose Room.  Teachers will provide introductions and give an overview of Pre-K.  Following the orientation, Open House begins at 5:30 and will run until 7:00.  You will have the opportunity to talk with teachers and see the school. 


School Supplies

The school supply list for Pre-K is located on the Carver-Lyon website, attached to this email, and hard copies can be picked up in the front desk.  It is recommended that schools supplies be brought to school when you come for your scheduled Playdate or Staggered start date.



Playdates will take place August 23, 26, and 27.  Families will be scheduled to attend a playdate on one of these dates for about 1-2 hours.  The way our playdates work is families and their child come for their scheduled time.  The parents have the opportunity to sit down with a few other families to meet the teachers and ask questions, complete additional paperwork, and meet other immersion families.  Your student will be in the other classroom where our instructional assistants will complete activities with them and they will have the opportunity to meet some of their future classmates and play together.  The playdate is intended for parents/guardians and their pre-K student.


Staggered Start

Pre-K students begin school on a staggered schedule.  Your child will be scheduled to come in on one of the staggered start dates which are August 28, 29, and 30.  During staggered start, teachers bring in a small group of students each of these dates so that students are eased into the start of school.  You will only come in on one of these dates for the full day.  Our teachers will notify you of your scheduled start date.


All students will report to school on September 3
