Connect to Kindergarten
Connect to Kindergarten is an opportunity for you to learn about your child's school. At the Spring Connect, you will likely tour the school, meet the kindergarten teachers and school staff, and register your child for school. This is also a great time to meet other parents. Take this opportunity to ask questions about parent involvement and school events you and your child can attend before the start of school. Invite other families in the neighborhood to these events. Many schools schedule their Spring Connect event to overlap with a school-wide festival or other event. Don't miss it, and please help us get the word out!!
Schools schedule Connect every winter, and they schedule a second event in the spring. If you miss those events, you should still visit the school and register by June 1. For more information about documents needed to register your child, go to http://www.pps.k12.or.us/schools-c/register.php.
The ABCs of Kindergarten brochure will help you think of important topics to ask at Connect such as transportation, meals, start and dismissal times, before and after school care, special education services and more. An updated booklet will be posted in January, 2013
