Countdown to Kindergarten

countdown"Countdown to Kindergarten" spotlights the importance of early learning activities and family involvement in education while also providing residents with a range of entertaining programs. Thanks to the joint efforts of local organizations, children registered to start kindergarten in August have a summer full of free and low-cost activities to help them get ready for their first day of school.

Kindergarten Kickoff

This late-summer informal orientation gets children and families into the school spirit! Parents can fill out paperwork, tour the school and meet other families and a few teachers. Meanwhile, school staff will screen children to assess their readiness for kindergarten. Don't panic if your child cannot do everything on the list. Simply start to introduce the new skills by embedding them throughout your daily routines -- counting bananas at the grocery store and finding words around the house that begin with certain letters. Remember, it's also important to work on your child's following directions, listening and getting along with others.
