Incoming West Powellhurst Kindergarten Families:

Please Join Us April 27

It’s time to prepare for kindergarten! Each spring we hold a special event for families who have a child beginning kindergarten in the fall. The evening gives students and families the chance to meet school staff, become familiar with their school and learn the next steps in beginning kindergarten.

At Connect to Kindergarten, families will have the opportunity to meet the school’s principal and kindergarten teachers. They’ll also learn more about their school and topics such as registration, absences, riding the school bus and how to prepare for the start of kindergarten.

We can’t emphasize enough how helpful participation in this event is to both families and elementary schools. Connect to Kindergarten helps children become excited and comfortable with starting school as well as gives parents the opportunity to ask questions. Also, participation helps schools project enrollment numbers and prepare the classroom for your student.

This year, each school is hosting their own virtual Connect to Kindergarten event from 6-7 pm on Tuesday, April 27th. Please click below for our school’s meeting link.
