Kindergarten "Smooth Start" offered in September

Students entering kindergarten next fall are encouraged to participate in a Smooth Start day before the first day of school.  Smooth Start is a day to ease students' transition into the school environment.  Children will have the chance to "practice" being in school for a day before the school year begins.

Children will get familiar with their classroom, learn where bathrooms are located, and learn how the cafeteria works.  They will also meet their teachers and have a chance to ask questions. 

Students attend Smooth Start on one of two days in September, based on their last name:
  • Monday, September 12 for students with last names starting with A through L
  • Tuesday, September 13 for students with last names starting with M through Z
  • Our teachers will contact you to schedule a DRA/EDL appointment.
  • There is no school for kindergarten students during DRA/EDL testing.
  • The first full day of school for kindergarten students is Wednesday, September 14, 2016
For more information, please call the school office at (503) 399-3302
