The Cardinal Kindergarten Pups got their first taste of school during orientation on Friday, Aug. 12. After a welcome from building Principal Kelly Bearer and teachers Mrs. Lawrence, Mrs. Dyer, Mrs. Derecskey and Mrs. Skolnik, students and their parents were off on a scavenger hunt through the building to find all of the essential areas for the upcoming school year! As students found each of the designated areas, like the restroom, cafeteria, gym, library, office, and music room, they got a sticker to place on their scavenger hunt sheet. We’re so excited to have this new group of students in the Cardinal family. Welcome Class of 2029!
Ice Cream Social Welcomes Families, Students
Nothing screams back to school like a big bowl of ice cream! On Tuesday, Aug. 16, Jordak Elementary and Cardinal Intermediate Schools hosted an Open House/Ice Cream Social to welcome students and their families back to the new school year. This was an opportunity for students to bring their school supplies, find their lockers, meet their teachers and see their classrooms for the upcoming year. The Cardinal PTA provided ice cream and sundae toppings for everyone to enjoy in the Jordak cafeteria. Cardinal Middle School also hosted an open house on August 16 from 5 to 6 p.m. We’re looking forward to a great year filled with Huskie Pride!
Kindergarten First Day Reminder
A reminder for parents that the first full day of school for our Kindergarten students will be Friday, Aug. 26. We can’t wait for the Class of 2029 to join us all day, every day!
The freshmen class also had their orientation on Friday, Aug. 12. Students were able to come to school, get their iPads and their schedules. After some encouragement and motivation from a guest speaker students were able to walk their schedules, find their classroom and get familiar with the layout of the high school. High school teachers and staff are excited for the new year – they’re looking forward to having the Class of 2020 with them!
