Kindergarten Information

Kindergarten Orientation and Enrollment
Kindergarten Orientation & Enrollment will be held in early May. Per Board policy, a student will be admitted to kindergarten at the school in their boundary area if his/her fifth birthday occurs on or before September 1, or is a kindergarten student transferring from a public school in another district. During orientation & enrollment, you will learn about kindergarten, online registration, and pick up an enrollment packet. Enrollment forms will be due back to the school by mid-May. Orientation and enrollment schedules and times for all elementary schools will be posted in the spring.
To begin the enrollment process for your child, please bring the following:
1. Proof of Age (Birth Certificate, Hospital Certificate, Baptismal Certificate)
2. Proof of Immunization (Completed Oregon Certificate of Immunization, Immunization Record printed from physicians office, Immunization Record Card signed by a medical professional)

Kindergarten Readiness
Kindergarten should be a good experience for students and a positive introduction to school. Students do best when they are prepared socially and academically to start school. Help your child succeed in school with these kindergarten readiness tips and resources.


Readiness tips:

  1. Read to your child. This is one of the most important activities for academic success, improving attention spans and learning early reading skills.
  2. Provide opportunities to be away from you. Activities such as organized sports, day camps and play groups will help them develop social independence and a sense of safety and confidence during the separation from you at school.
  3. Be sure your child gets enough sleep. Young children need at least 10 hours of uninterrupted sleep for the brain to shift learning into memory. Even a small amount of sleep can affect school performance, which is often exhibited as hyperactivity.
