2018 Summer Letter from Mrs. Podest

school supplies

Dear Kindergarten Families,

Welcome to Kindergarten! This will be such an exciting year as your child learns, makes new friends and grows with many new experiences we will share together! Kindergarten begins on Thursday, September 6, 2018. There will be an 11:50am dismissal this week. The children will need to bring a healthy snack and drink each day. Please be sure to label ALL personal items (especially school sweaters).

The following are your supplies your child will need to have for the first day:


Child friendly scissors 1 pair of child

1 box of 8 count crayons

1 small plastic hinged art box (PLEASE do not get a big one – needs to fit in cubby)

2 ( horizontal pocket ) folders labeled with your child’s name

Small box of #2 pencils

2 large glue sticks

1 large pink eraser

1 art smock (an old t-shirt works well)

 $1.25 marked in an envelope with your child’s name to purchase copybook


**These items will be shared with the class and may be sent in the first week.

2 boxes of tissues

2 rolls of paper towel

2 pkgs of disinfecting wipes (for tables)

2 pkgs of baby wipes

1 box of number 2 pencils


If you have any questions, please feel free to call the main office at 201-664-6364 or email me at  jpodest@sja-hillsdale.org. Have a wonderful summer with your families and I look forward to seeing you all in September!


Love and prayers,
Mrs. Podest
