JLA Welcomes Incoming Kindergartners for Summer Ignite’s Transition Week

Students who will start kindergarten in August are eligible for Session 2 of Summer Ignite at James Lane Allen Elementary. Transition Week is a great way for children to be prepared and excited as they enter our doors for the first time and begin their academic journey!

Teachers will engage the youngsters with math, reading, and enrichment activities. There is no cost for families, and we provide all necessary materials. Breakfast and lunch are also included, along with bus transportation (unless the child lives within a mile of the school).

Dates: July 25-28, Mondays through Thursdays

Time: 8 a.m. to noon (Doors open at 7:45 a.m.)

For questions, please contact JLA Summer Ignite coordinators Whitney Keinath and Dana Bradford.

Translations: Transition Week - Spanish; Transition Week - Swahili

Note: JLA students who have just completed fifth grade can attend Transition Week at their middle school. Watch for information from the program coordinator at your child’s future school.
