Starting kindergarten this fall? We want to see you!
Let’s get to know each other! If your child will turn 5 on or before September 1, please come to your school’s kindergarten roundup event (see schedule) or contact your school to pre-enroll for fall 2017. If you have neighbors or friends with kids who will be in kindergarten this fall, please tell them about 4J’s kindergarten roundup events (and/or invite them on Facebook).
Starting school is an exciting time for kids and parents. For many children, kindergarten is the beginning of their education, the start of their developing love of learning, and even their first steps outside the familiarity of home. For many parents, it’s the start of a relationship with their public school system.
In Eugene School District 4J, we know how important the kindergarten year is. The 4J kindergarten program strives to give parents and students the right start in education by caring for and understanding each child’s needs and each parent’s concerns. Kindergarten is a full-day program in every 4J school.
Your child’s kindergarten experience will include:
• Full day with strong introduction to academics
• Caring, highly skilled teachers
• Social/emotional development
• Music and physical education at every school
• Safe, secure, welcoming school environment
Kindergarten orientation events March 13–23: Every 4J elementary school has an event scheduled between March 13 and 23. Visit your school, meet the teachers and staff, and get a free book and goodie bag for your child. We are looking forward to seeing you!
