This week, we welcome our incoming Kindergarten class and their families to Sacajawea with a week of Jump Start. Each day, students will spend three hours with our kindergarten teachers, Ms. Jackson and Ms. Rings, and get to meet other members of our faculty along the way.
From the district, “What’s Jump Start?”
“Jump Start is a FREE week-long experience for Kindergartners to learn about school. Children will become familiar with their new school building, staff, typical school day activities and practices. Their parents/guardians will be able to meet with the school principal and ask questions about school. Teachers start to build relationships with students and observe their skills and strengths. Read about signs of a successful transition to Kindergarten.”
There is also a Kindergarten Play Date scheduled for Thursday Aug. 22nd at noon, just after Jump Start ends. Meet on the upper playground, and bring your lunch and a picnic. It’ll be a great chance to meet incoming Kindergarteners. For more information on the play date, contact Karen Murphy (Leonie’s Mom): email@example.com.
