Incoming K4 & K5 Students
Save the Date: Transition Day is August 28.

This date helps our K4 and K5 students make the transition to school. Parents/Guardians will be asked to register for this opportunity. More registration information will be forthcoming. Here are some details to help you understand how important it is to have your child participate.

  • Incoming four year old Kindergarten students will attend for the half day program per their registration. All students will get to know each other and their teachers. They will be introduced to their school building and playground. Additional school staff will assist in each classroom which will decrease the adult to student ratio.
  • Incoming five year old Kindergarten students will experience a typical full day in school complete with lunch, recess periods, and specialist classes of physical education, music, art, library, and technology. We encourage all students who are eligible for transportation to take the bus to and/or from school on this day. More details will follow about transportation.
