Iroquois Kindergarten Teacher Meet and Greet

Welcome Kindergarten Families!

We are excited to welcome your child into our classrooms at Grand Rapids Christian Elementary School this year. This will be a year of many firsts for your children and we are eager to get started on this journey with your family. We love kindergarteners and their love for learning about God’s world.

In preparation for the first day of kindergarten on Wednesday, August 19, we would like to welcome your child into our classrooms for a short visit. We know this will help ease some of the questions and fears of the first day of school.

Please join us on Monday, August 17 from 1:00 pm — 3:00 pm. There will be a small group of children scheduled to enter at a designated time. If you are unable to make this date/time, please email your child’s classroom teacher.

You can find the name of your child's teacher by logging into your ParentVue account and selecting "Class Schedule."


  • Due to Covid-19 restrictions, social distancing requirements, and the health and wellbeing of all families, parents will be asked to wait outside of the school building for the welcome visit.
  • Your child’s teacher will come to the front door of the school to get your child from the marked tables.
  • Children will be required to wear masks into the school.
  • Parents who are unable to social distance while waiting outside will also need to wear a mask.

We know you may have questions for us as well and we welcome you to email us any questions you may have. Each teacher will also send you a video of our classroom spaces so you have an opportunity to view each space since most of the kindergarten classrooms have moved over the summer. We are excited to show you your child’s learning space!

For your child to meet their teacher, please click the button below to access the Back to School page. Click the "Iroquois" tab, then the "Kindergarten Teacher Meet and Greet Info" section.
