Jump Start is a pre-kindergarten, transition program conducted in August for students preparing to enter kindergarten in the fall. Often, students arrive at kindergarten with little experience in a group setting, little exposure to early learning activities, and very little knowledge of what school is and how to be successful in it. Jump Start provides that pre-kindergarten/transitional experience for all children and families.

 Jump Start:

  • offers a safe and welcoming introduction to elementary school for families and students, relieving many first-day anxieties;
  • provides school staff with critical information about student’s learning needs, allowing planning for individualized instruction during those important early months of kindergarten;
  • gives families an opportunity to meet staff, discuss kindergarten readiness, and receive educational support around helping their students become school-ready;
  • provides an opportunity to connect students with necessary district resources.

When: Dates for 2023 coming soon!

Where: Each Elementary school will host their kindergarteners as we welcome them to school for the first time.

Transportation will be provided. We can't wait to meet you! Registration will open soon. You must be pre-enrolled in kindergarten to register.
