Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, April 25, 2012 7A Kindergarte.n Round Up rides into Quincy" Kindergarten Round Up will be held at Pioneer Elementary School Tuesday, May 1, from 9 to 10:30 a.m. Parents can pick up the registration packet at the school. Complete the pack- et and bring it with the child's immunization record and birth certification May 1. An important reminder is that children must be 5 years old on or before Nov. 1, 2012. Starting school is one of the most important and exciting events in a child's and par- ent's life together. Round Up helps with the transition of starting school and can make it a more positive event. Parents of a child entering kindergarten may h/ve many concerns. "Will my child be ready to handle a new school? .... Will the teacher be able to help my child? .... Will the school be safe? .... Will my child meet new friends?" "How will my child behave?" Children have their own worries: "Who's going to help me? .... Will other kids like me? .... Will my teacher like me? .... What happens when I have to go to the bathroom?" "Who is going to meet me af- ter school?" Parents can talk to their child ahead of time, asking, "Do you have any questions about starting school? Do you want to talk about anything special about school?" At Kindergarten Round Up parents will have the opportu- nity to talk about all of these issues with school staff, health care providers, other profes- sionals, volunteers and other parents. The May I event also makes it possible for a child to complete the kindergarten health requirements and to visit his or her soon-to-be school. Parents and children are welcome to attend Kinder- garten Round Up even if they have already completed the health requirements (physical and immunizations). New kindergartners receive a back- pack filled with school sup- plies at Round Up. For more information call Pioneer Ele- mentary School at 283-6520. There are many simple things that parents can do during the next few months to help a child get ready to start school in the fall. --Teach your child to be safe by making sure he knows his first and last name, home phone number and street address. --Become familiar with Pio- neer Elementary School by visiting the classroom ahead of time. Explor e the play- ground. Find the best way to get to the bus stop or the school. --Show your child that learning is fun and encourage curiosity. Play games with words, numbers and colors. Garden and cook together. Go on local field trips. Share books with your child often. --Encourage helpful habits like dressing and choosing clothes for herself, doing sim- i ple chores, and sticking to a ! schedule. ', --Support physical develop- ! ment by providing plenty of outdoor activities.
