Connect to Kindergarten
Connect to Kindergarten is an opportunity for you to learn about your child's school. At the Winter Connect event 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. Most schools also schedule a Spring Connect event. You are encouraged to attend both. The more you learn about your school, the more confident you and your child will feel on the first day of school.
If you miss your school's Connect 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, 2014
