Over 200 wee warriors and their families were welcomed into the Warrior Family on Friday, August 2, at the popular Jumpstart program. The optional one-day orientation designed to help lessen the first day of school anxiety. Preschool and kindergarten students of Winton Woods Primary North and Winton Woods Primary South, were introduced to their amazing teachers and classmates while parents attended an informational session with Principal Wallace at Primary South and Principal Jones at Primary North.
At the beginning of the programs, departments had stations with staff available to answer questions. Many district departments offered additional information including insight about teaching and learning, food services, PTA, spirit wear, school nurses, transportation, uniform vendors, student services, technology, and enrollment.
“The purpose of this program is to ensure all our students feel prepared for a school year of academic gains,” said Community Engagement Coordinator Corina Denny. “This program allows our students to get a jump start through interacting with their teacher and classmates before the school year has started. It also provides an opportunity for them to get connected to our Warrior staff and community.”
Winton Woods grandparent and Greenhills graduate Angie Harlan said, "My grandson has difficulty adjusting to new situations so having this introduction to school is really helpful.”
