Make the Big Day a Happy One

Limestone Learning Foundation
School will be an exciting experience, but it is difficult to be away from home and may be a little scary for your student. Here are some ways that you can make the first day a happy one:
  • Talk openly about your student’s feelings so that you can help them with any questions or concerns they may have.
  • In the weeks leading up to the first day of school, practice walking to the school or to the bus stop so the routine will become familiar to the child.
  • A few days before school starts, begin getting your student and yourself used to the bedtime and morning schedule that will be in place during the school year.
  • Sometimes it is difficult for parents and guardians to see their student go off to Kindergarten; make sure your student does not sense your apprehension; be positive and excited about this new experience.
Kindergarten is a wonderful experience and your student’s next phase on their journey of learning. The Board and our staff is committed to ensuring that this is a great start to school.

The Limestone District School Board is situated on traditional territories of the Anishinaabe & Haudenosaunee.
