Kindergarten Open House
Parents or guardians with children who will enter kindergarten are invited to attend an Open House on Thursday, Oct. 13 or Tuesday, Nov. 1 from 9 to 10 a.m.

Come see the kindergarten hands-on learning environment which emphasizes cooperation, creativity, and time outdoors. Meet kindergarten teachers and Maria Archer, K-8 principal. Learn about the admissions process. Parents and guardians are encouraged to visit without their children so they can observe and ask questions freely.  The Open House will be held in the school’s elementary building from 9 to 10 a.m. with parking available in the lot marked Gym/Elementary.

To register, contact Marsha Thomas, admissions counselor, at admissions@easternmennonite.org, or call 540-236-6021.
