Sneak Peek

For students entering kindergarten this fall

This week long program gives our youngest students an opportunity to experience what it will be like to be a kindergartner and an extra boost of confidence for their first day of school. The sessions are held in the kindergarten room of the four elementary schools listed below and are led by a district kindergarten teacher. Students will enjoy fun activities and learn basic routines to help them transition into kindergarten. New this year, students will get to explore a school bus and have the opportunity to eat (lunch is optional on the last day). Each student will receive a book. You may choose any site that works for you and are not restricted to your child’s home school.

Cost $65

Scholarships are available for families that meet low income guidelines. Please call Holly at 515-633-5010 to apply. You may call beginning on April 17, as scholarships may be limited.
