I will send out another communication when this happens. **Please note that any information in the parent portal before Friday may be incorrect.
**Kindergarten placements will be sent out next week by the latest, 8/17.
More information to come on Friday about class placement and the start of the school year.

Welcome Incoming Kindergarten Students! / ¡Bienvenidos Estudiantes de Kindergarten!
We are excited you will be a part of our Stamford Public Schools school community! To better prepare for your child, we invite you to sign up for a time to have your incoming Kindergartner assessed in Foundational Literacy Skills. Please choose 3 possible time slots and we will send you a confirmation email as soon as possible. A Teacher will test your child in the areas of Print Concepts, Phonological Awareness/Phonemic Awareness, and Phonics. Generally, the testing session will last between 15 -20 minutes. At the end of this test, your child will choose a book to take home.

Dear Incoming K Families,
We hope you are having a nice summer. Here is information about school supplies and Kindergarten Play Dates that are sponsored by the PTO:
1) School Supplies: (Sent last week, but see info below)
Northeast Elementary School is partnering with Bright SchoolKitz® to provide school supplies to match your teacher’s wish list. All classroom teachers in each grade level will have the same supply lists for the 2022-2023 school year. So you can order BEFORE classroom placements are announced. Order now and eliminate the back-to-school shopping hassle. Orders should be placed at least 2 weeks before school starts to ensure on time delivery.
Kits are filled with brand names (Crayola, Elmer’s, etc.) and quality products that are competitively priced with local and large retailers. All kits are designed to be shipped to your home. Please use the following link to shop from our PTO website https://northeastpto.digitalpto.com/school-supplies/ **Grade level supply lists can also be viewed at the Bright School Kits website.**
If you would like to donate towards purchasing kits for Northeast students, the option is available in the “add-ons” section after adding a kit to your cart.
Questions? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-844-937-5489.

It is hard to believe that we have come to the end of the school year. Although this year had many challenges, I feel it was a very successful one. We have truly enjoyed having your children this year, and we hope they had a great 21-22 school year at Northeast. I hope everyone has time this summer to enjoy the outdoors and spend time with family. Take time to recharge, before you know it we will be back on August 29th for the first day of school for the 22-23 school year. Here are some important announcements:
1) Report cards are now available on the parent portal.
2) Class placements for the 22-23 school year will come out in the first few weeks of August.
3) If you are changing schools or moving out of the area, please make sure to contact the school to let us know.

Have a great summer!
