About Kindergarten

Special Days and Schedule Changes


Kindergarten is an amazing year!

Kindergarten curriculum is varied and progresses through the school year. Kindergarten is a developmental year that begins with activities similar to those in preschool and slowly evolves to a curriculum that provides students with experiences and skills needed for First Grade success.

Students participate in group membership as they: share ideas, listen to others, practice social skills and learn how to work in various group activities.

Student work in kindergarten includes: exploring art, writing and coloring, using manipulatives to learn the content areas, and listening to or reading books. Children integrate new ideas, concepts and thinking skills through active participation. Kindergarten is a year to observe, experiment, practice, play and grow. Mastery in academic areas occurs as students acquire new ideas that build upon prior concepts. Children learn best when they view themselves as capable learners, have a positive self-image and view learning as an enjoyable process.
