Family Interest Survey - 2021 CLES Little Dolphins
The purpose of the CLES Little Dolphins group is to help incoming kindergarten students, and their families, get to know one another. This group is specifically for students who will start kindergarten in Fall 2021 at Centennial Lane Elementary School (CLES) in Ellicott City, MD. During the spring and summer 2021, the CLES Little Dolphins group will hosted playdates, info sessions, and family activities (both virtual and in-person).
During the Fall 2021, this group will continue to update and circulate the family directory and Facebook page, so that kindergarteners and their families can continue to connect with new friends in their neighborhood and school community!
If your child will enter kindergarten at CLES this August 2021, we invite you to complete this family directory interest survey, which will collect your contact information and your ideas for activities for this group. All responses will be kept private and confidential, unless you specifically consent to have your name, email and/or neighborhood shared with other members of the 2021 CLES Little Dolphins group through a private email list.
We also invite you to join our private Facebook group, by searching in Facebook for "CLES Little Dolphins" or typing this URL into your browser:

This is the name of the student who will be a kindergartener in fall 2021 at CLES.

Your Email Address
Provide the best email address to use when sharing updates and announcements to the CLES Little Dolphins group. For multiple email address, please list with a semi-colon separating the multiple email addresses.
The purpose of this question is to help families in the same neighborhood connect with one another. Provide a general description of your neighborhood. For example, "Font Hill Drive" or "near Breconshire Rd & White Rose Way" or "Grosvenor Dr. Area" or "Gwynn Park." Provide whatever level of detail you are comfortable with. Providing your specific address is NOT required.
Which information can we share with others in this group?
CHECK ALL THAT APPLY. The CLES Little Dolphins group plans to create a roster of 2021 Little Dolphin families, for the purpose of allowing families to directly connect with one another. This roster will ONLY be shared with other members of the 2021 CLES Little Dolphin group thru a private Google sheet (restricted access) and will NOT be published on a public-facing website. Ideally, we would include the parent/guardian name(s), the child's name, the email address, and the neighborhood--however, you can pick and choose which elements we share.
ALL!!! (Okay to share my name/child's name/email/neighborhood)
NONE. Please keep my info private.

Are you comfortable with outdoor events?
Little Dolphins events can include playground playdates, picnics, bike/scooter rides in CLES parking lot, outings to nearby parks, farms, nature centers, ice cream shops, etc. Events can be SMALL GROUP (like immediate neighborhood, or limited slots w/ signup), or LARGE GROUP open to all.

Maybe -- still being very COVID-cautious

Zoom events for ADULTS (parents) would be things like parent info sessions with CLES staff or PTA, parent chats on other topics, etc. Zoom events for KIDS would be things like virtual scavenger hunts, get-to-know-you games on Zoom, virtual Bingo, etc. (obviously adults would help facilitate the Zoom event).
Yes, BOTH for kids & adults
Yes, for KIDS only
Yes, for ADULTS only
NOT interested in virtual events
What type of events would interest you most?

Do you have other children, including those who attend CLES?
