It is time to start preparing for the 2015-2016 school year! We imagine you are as excited as we are for this eventful transition! Knowing that there may be many questions about this transition we have different opportunities to help you.

This month there will be a District #150 Kindergarten Transition Fair at Hult Health Education Center Saturday, April 25 from 9am-2pm. At this fair each District #150 school containing a Kindergarten class will be represented. This event is a “one-stop-shop” for families. At this event, parents and families can register their child for Kindergarten, learn about Kindergarten curriculum, participate in health screenings and enjoy free food and door prizes.

In addition, many of our District #150 schools have a site-based Kindergarten Round-Ups you can visit and attend as well. Please contact your home school or visit their website for more information. This is an opportunity for you and your child to see the school and Kindergarten rooms first hand.
