Watauga County Schools Welcome To Kindergarten Series

Last Updated on March 22, 2017 6:56 pm

The following is the first part of a four-part series that will detail a day in the life of a Kindergartener in Watauga County Schools.

The first day of Kindergarten is a great milestone in a child’s life — a day that marks the beginning of an entire lifetime of learning and exploration. In Watauga County Schools, Kindergarten is a time for learning, but it is also a time for growing, creating, making friends and importantly: Having fun.

When you send your child to Kindergarten in Watauga County Schools, you are entrusting us with your greatest treasure — and that’s a responsibility that we don’t take lightly.

All of our Kindergarten classrooms are lead by highly-qualified, seasoned professionals with years of experience who are dedicated to meeting children on their level and moving them forward. Teachers in our Kindergarten classrooms appreciate that each child is an individual and they strive to meet each student’s needs individually.

From the moment kinders arrive at school — from the classroom to the lunchroom to the bus ride home — they are under the watch of career professionals who are wholly dedicated to their safety and care.

Over the course of their day, Kinders in WCS have access to a wealth of opportunities. From things like art and music instruction, to physical education and recess every day, kinders learn in a fun and active environment — one that might have evolved since parents experienced their first days of schooling.

Over the next weeks, many parents and children across the district will begin the process of Kindergarten orientation. In a series of stories leading up to those dates, we would like to highlight some of the things make being a kinder in Watauga County Schools special.

If you have any questions, or if you’d like to visit one of our schools, please feel free to call Tamara Stamey at (828) 264-7190.
