UPK and Kindergarten parent orientations
This orientation is for parents of students entering Fredonia Central School District's UPK and Kindergarten at Wheelock Early Childhood Center for the 21-22 school year. The teachers and staff will describe the program, review student and parent expectations, and will take the time to answer your questions. The event will be recorded and will be available for viewing for all parents and guardians on Facebook and the District webpage (www.fredonia.wnyric.org)
We are so excited to welcome your child to the Wheelock Early Childhood Center, the home of our Kindergarten and Universal Pre-Kindergarten classrooms! Despite the tumultuous 20-21 school year due to COVID-19, we are excited to again be coming back to school full-time this September for both full-day Kindergarten and UPK.
The Kindergarten and UPK classes will run from 8:45 am – 3:00 pm. There will continue to be busing provided for students, for both pick-up and drop-off, but parents are also encouraged to provide transportation for their child, if possible.
Your child will be invited in, with a parent or caregiver, to meet the teacher and familiarize him or herself with the classroom during the week of September 8 – 10. Please call the Wheelock office, at (716) 679-1581, ex 2800, to schedule a time for your visit.
There will be a staggered start for all UPK and Kindergarten students from September 13 – 17th. Your child will attend one of these selected days to learn the classroom routines and spend 1-1 time with the teacher and classroom aide. Our Kindergarten students will also go through our Kindergarten academic screening. All UPK and Kindergarten students will start school 5 days/week on Monday, September 20th.
I look forward to meeting you this fall and getting to know all of the new students throughout the school year. The Wheelock Early Childhood Center Faculty and Staff look forward to another extraordinary school year filled with fun, age appropriate academics while also building the social skills of all students!
