My name is Mrs. Rigby.  I will be our child’s kindergarten teacher this year.  I am so excited for  the upcoming school year!!!  This is my 12th year at Vartan Gregorian and my twenty first year teaching.  School starts on Tuesday, September 3rd.  We will be having a meet and greet on Thursday, August 29th @ 3:30pm.  You may enter the school at the East Street door and go to the auditorium.  We will take a tour of the school and you will get to see our classroom (room 19). 

    On the first day of school all your child will need is a backpack.  I will supply the rest.  But make sure the backpack is big enough to fit a 9 x 12 folder.  Also try not to get a backpack with wheels those are usually heavy and tough for children to use.

    During our meet and greet I will go over our schedule, lunch, recess, drop off/pickup etc…  I have included a wish list of items we need for classroom and also a list of snack items for our break in the afternoon.  If you can donate any of these items you can bring them on the 29th. Thanks in advance for our help!!!

    Looking forward to meeting you and your kindergartener!!:)
