New Parents

New Parent Checklist

New Parent Orientation will be held on May 23rd from 5:30-7:30 pm in the Steele auditorium.

We will review the day in the life of a Steele student, have a video of our current kindergartners in action, discuss Steele traditions and do our best to cover all of the frequently asked questions that we get every year. There will be a lot of experts present: all of our current kindergarten and first grade teachers, veteran parents and myself. I want to stress that this is for all of our new parents. A lot of the information is geared towards kindergartners because that will be the majority of our new students. However, we will make sure to include information that all new parents need and also be able to answer questions for any grade level. I hope to see you there.

We will have child care for this event. It will cost $3 per child. Please call the front office at 720-424-3720 to let us know if you plan on using child care, this will allow us to plan appropriately.

We recognize there is a lot to keep in mind when registering your child at the beginning of the school year. Below is a set of guidelines you need to follow to ensure your readiness for the beginning of the school year.
