Welcome to St. Bethlehem Kindergarten!


We love that you are going to be with us for this very important first step into school! The following is some information that will help you navigate these first days of school.

  • Once your child is fully registered, your child will be assigned a teacher. You will hear from your child’s teacher sometime in the week of August 2-5.  They will reach out to you with the primary phone number you gave at registration.


  • August 6, 5pm-6pm is Kindergarten Meet-and-Greet time here at the school! 6pm-7pm is designated for our 1st and 2nd grade students. You can park and enter on the Wilma Rudolph or Old Russellville Pike side of the building on this evening. You’ll tour the school, ride a school bus over on the Old Russellville Pike side of the building, and meet your child’s teacher.


  • August 9, 9:30am-10:45am – Parents/Guardians and kindergarten students come to the school at 9:30 for a meeting that begins at 9:45 in your child’s classroom. Kindergarten students DO NOT ride the bus to or from school on this day.  During this morning meeting you will receive:
  • more details about the school year
  • the specific day your child will come to school for his or her full testing day from 8:15am-3:30pm (either August 12, 13, 16, or 17)
  • Breakfast is served to all students in the rooms every morning. We start breakfast at 8:15. We let children down to the rooms beginning a 8:15.
  • We kindly ask that you say hi to the teacher, help get your child settled, and then say goodbye within 10-15 minutes. We promise they will be fine, and they’ll have a great day!


  • On the August 9 day, kindergarten students do not ride the bus to school, nor stay at school after the 9:45am parent/guardian meetings in the classrooms. Students will return home with parent and/or guardian.


  • On August 9, teachers will give parents/guardians one specific testing day for each child. This one testing day allows your child to acclimate to school with only 4-5 other students and the teacher. Testing days will be either August 12, 13, 16, or the 17.  ALL kindergarten students come full time on August 18.


  • Parents/guardians can walk their kindergarten student to the classroom on their testing day.


  • Beginning on August 18, students will enter the school from the car rider line or the buses on their own. We have many, many teachers and staff posted to assist our students getting to and from their classroom daily.


  • ALL St. B students will wear an informational lanyard that will given to parents/guardians on August 6 during our Meet-and-Greet time from 5pm-6pm. First and second grade students will also receive a lanyard to wear the first days of school.


  • Kindergarten students need to wear their lanyards on their assigned testing day, and August 18-25.
