We have 84 Preps who will start school in a few short weeks. One of our transition tasks is to send out 'Welcome Letters' to our new students. These are addressed to our students and even though we have met them a few times when they visited for transition visits and we saw them at Kinder as well it is nice for them to get this letter.
Each of our four teachers makes sure that they are personal and outline our 'Assessment Interview' time. We will have each new Prep one on one for an hour to do the Mathematics Online Interview as well as the English Online Interview. We get such great data from these two tools and get immediate feedback and can start differentiating our program as soon as we have completed them.
