Storytimes for incoming kindergarten students will take place the week of May 20. During storytime, your children get to come into their school and explore the kindergarten room, listen to a story, and make new friends while parents are learning more about the school from the principal. This is a great opportunity for your children to see kindergarten classrooms and meet kindergarten teachers prior to starting school! Each elementary school schedules the event separately, so look for specific dates and times when you register for school or use the calendar for each school on thewebsite.
