Bay Village parents and legal guardians of incoming Kindergarteners are invited to attend a Kindergarten Information Night event on Thursday, Feb. 1, at 6:30 p.m. in the Normandy Elementary School Cafeteria, 26920 Normandy Road. For those who are unable to attend, the event will be recorded and linked to the district's Kindergarten information page.

The Kindergarten registration procedure will be reviewed at this meeting, as well as an overview of Kindergarten and Kindergarten readiness, and information regarding daycare, speech therapy, early entrance, transportation and volunteer opportunities.

Once registered for Kindergarten, families are encouraged to sign up for an optional Playdate this summer to meet Principal Dan Sebring and other new Normandy families. More information is available online and at the Information Night.

Normandy Elementary School is located on a tree-lined street in residential Bay Village, and serves Kindergarten through second grade, providing full-day Kindergarten for all students at no cost to families. Normandy's mascot is Norman Bee, and its colors are blue and yellow.

The Bay Village Schools Kindergarten program is designed to support high-quality learning while giving every child the opportunity to learn in the way that is best suited to their strengths and needs. The goal is to help students reach their full potential through a program of learning that is consistent, relevant and age appropriate.

Normandy recognizes the importance of helping children feel connected to the curriculum, to see themselves in what is taught, how it is taught and how it applies to the world around them. The staff recognizes that the needs of learners are diverse, and strives to help all students develop the knowledge, skills and perspectives they will need to become informed, productive, caring, responsible, healthy and active citizens in their own communities and in the world.

Learning is a continuous and reciprocal process, and a partnership with parents is essential to the success of Normandy students.
