OVPTA-sponsored Virtual Storytime/Playdates for Incoming Kindergarteners. Please join us for Zoom meetings where you can hear a story read by an Olympic View parent or older student, and you will have the opportunity to ask questions of fellow parents, too.  Please contact info@ovpta.org or president@ovpta.org for Zoom meeting links. Scheduled playdates Wed, Aug 5 at 10am; Mon, Aug 10 at 6:30 pm; Sat, Aug 22 at 10am. 

Jump Start for Incoming Kindergarteners: The following information is taken from an email sent to families from Principal Bean. 

Monday, August 17th- Families will come to the OV playground at assigned times. We will have a quick individual meet and greet, about 5 to 10 minutes with each family. Teachers will get information from parents and then you will get your Kindergarten Kit that will be used during the week and school year. There will be a chart on the playground fence facing 95th with teacher names and class lists. Adults will be on the playground to help you find your teacher. For safety and social distancing, we do not want too many people on the playground.  Please come at your assigned time and leave after meeting your teacher. The grassy field and playscape will be closed. Everyone must wear masks and we will follow social distancing guidelines.

August 17th times-- Families come by first letter in last name
9:00 – 9:45   A to G
9:45 – 10:30  H to P
10:30 – 11:15  Q to Z

August 18 to August 21st: Teachers will have Zoom sessions from 9:00 to around 9:45. Your child’s teacher will send out a Zoom invitation the afternoon of August 17th for the sessions. We will have activities to get to know each other, go over the Kindergarten Kit, read books about getting ready for school and dance!  It will be helpful for families to put the Zoom app on your device.

 If you cannot make it to the first day of Jump Start, contact Anna Cieslar. amcieslar@seattleschools.org.

Please fill out the form if you need groceries purchased, medicines delivered, internet connectivity, childcare information, tutoring, etc..
