â€¢ Amy Smith, PE specialist – Her classes will be on Mondays and Wednesdays
This is an exciting time for you and your kindergartner! We know you have questions and concerns, so we have prepared a list to get you started:
â€¢ Your child will need a backpack. It will be hung at school during the day.
â€¢ Teachers will meet your child outside the kindergarten doors at the front of the school when the bell rings. Pick your child up at the end of the day in the same place.
â€¢ Your child will adjust to the new school experience best if you do not go into the classroom with them during the first few weeks of school.
â€¢ All other visits to the school must be through the office, where you mustÂ sign in and wear a badge.
â€¢ Children learn best when they arrive on-time and stay for their scheduled session. If they are here every day and on time, they will learn more and be happier at school.
â€¢ Even our littlest students learn better when they are dressed comfortably: shorts should be finger-tip length, no spaghetti straps or tank tops, and shoes should be worn to ensure safety on the playground.
â€¢ Teachers will give you a list of possible donations to the classroom.
â€¢ We are happy to welcome you and your kindergartnerÂ to Copper Hills!

– This is a very successful program, designed so parents can volunteer in the classroom while other parents watch their toddlers. Parents help in turn by watching other parents’ toddlers.
– Two people stay in the Family Center with the children, while the other parent(s) go to the classroom for one hour. Parents then trade places. Since Debbie or Krista are almost always working in the Family Center, only one parent is usually needed.

– Parents can do side jobs for teachers, such as folding and stapling, while they watch the children.
– Parents are responsible for students’ safe passage to and from school. If your child is having problems with passage, the school will help when possible. Please notify an administrator. (We teach the SWAT anti-bullying program.)
– Please make sure your children have and know family rules for getting to and from Copper Hills. Please follow the calendar to be aware of short days and off times.
– Students should not be on the school grounds when school is not in session, and should not be left unattended for more than a few minutes before and after school.
