​WEST ORANGE, NJ – Recently, incoming Kindergarten students, their parents and caregivers attended orientation sessions where information on what to expect in September was shared.

Once the families were greeted, Kindergarten teachers escorted the children to another classroom for hands-on activities, as principals discussed the details of the school day, distributed information packets, answered questions and reviewed important requirements.

Following the information session, fifth grade students took parents and guardians on a tour of the school.

At Redwood Elementary School, retiring Principal Barbara Kivlon met with her final group of incoming Kindergarten families, noting that she became principal 13 years ago, and that her first class of Kindergartners will be graduating high school later this month.

“You will make wonderful memories, just as those students and parents did,” she told the group.
