Connect to Kindergarten

Welcome incoming kindergarten families! Attending your school’s Connect to Kindergarten event is a great way to get oriented to your child’s new school and begin talking to your child about kindergarten. Kindergarten is an exciting and important step for the whole family.


Your first step for preparing for school is to register for school! What are the steps to enroll in school? It’s as easy 1-2-3!

1. Verify your child is eligible for kindergarten. Must turn 5 years old by September 1 of the enrolling year.

2. Confirm your neighborhood school associated with your address that is within the Portland Public School boundaries.

3. Visit the school. You can meet the principal, teachers, tour the school, learn about the curriculum and register for school.
