children
Welcome to Green Mountain Elementary.  We look forward to having your family start their schooling with us.

Kindergarten "Slow Start" Orientation will be a special time for you and your child to meet the teacher, tour kindergarten and review important paperwork. Parents will receive a phone call from the school office the week of August  19th to schedule the slow start appointment. Appointments will be scheduled for September 4, 5 and 6, and last approximately one hour. 

The first day of school for kindergartners will be Monday, September 9.  

Class lists, where you will find out your teacher and your child's classmates, will be available at the Meet & Greet, Wednesday, August 28 from 2:30 - 3:30 pm
supplies

We ask that all students have a backpack or bag for transporting books and other items to and from school, as this extends the life of both textbooks and library books. Teachers will see that important school papers, such as newsletters and progress reports, are sent home in backpacks. Please check your child’s backpack daily.

Please do not purchase supplies that are not listed; items not included on the supply list should be kept at home.

These lists are specific to each grade. Individual teachers may request other supplies or donations. A letter in the fall will outline individual class needs.

Many supplies are used in cooperative groups. Please label only the scissors with your child’s name.

For classroom donations, please make checks payable to GM Elementary. Thank you!
