Your child is entering a school district that prides itself on being student-centered and committed to partnering with parents to ensure a positive school experience for everyone. Kindergarten is their first real experience with responsibility, leadership, and relationships.

We encourage all parents to get involved, volunteer when they can, and communicate with the teachers. We hope you enjoy being a part of their experience.

In kindergarten, the students begin to learn reading, math, language arts, science, and social skills. They also learn how to get along with others and participate in electives such as art, music, and physical education. The media, technology, and recess will be introduced to your students as well.
