This event is for parents and their future kindergartners. Each session is planned in an informal open house style so families can arrive and leave anytime during the scheduled sessions. More information will be shared closer to the event.

What to Expect

You will visit classrooms, go for a bus ride and experience typical activities, which will show you and your child what kindergarten is like. You will have an opportunity to talk more with the principal and classroom staff and turn in any additional enrollment paperwork.
