Welcome to Kindergarten!
Kindergarten Soft Start Week Aug. 27-30
The week of August 27 has been set aside for our Kindergarten Soft Start Program! This is an important opportunity for you to come to school with your kindergartener for a one-hour timeslot to meet our staff and discuss your child’s specific needs. We will discuss schedules, transportation, health related issues, and making a successful transition to kindergarten. All information gathered during this appointment is essential for a smooth and positive start to the grade school experience!
After all “soft start” appointments are completed, the kindergarten staff will meet and place children with a specific classroom teacher. You will receive a personal phone call from your child’s assigned classroom teacher to let you know of their assignment.
On Thursday, August 30, your child will join us for a “soft start” to kindergarten in their specific classroom for a morning or afternoon session. Your child will bring their school supplies, find their cubby, practice using school materials, and spend time in the classroom with classmates and peers.
Regular kindergarten classes will begin on Tuesday, September 4 following our regular daily school schedule, 7:50 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
You will receive your kindergarten soft start appointment slot by August 23.
Please remember, you do need to register your kindergartener at your neighborhood school. Registration begins at 8 am on Monday, August 18. Bring your child’s birth certificate, immunization records, social security number (optional) and proof of address.

We look forward to working with you to provide a solid start to your child’s educational career.
