Kindergarten, here we come

South Washington County Schools District 833 School Readiness program is still accepting registration for "Kindergarten Here We Come," Monday through Friday, Aug. 3 - 14, from 9 to 11:30 a.m. for children who are eligible to attend kindergarten in the fall of 2009. The fee for the program is based on a sliding fee scale according to family size and gross annual income.

Children will explore their elementary school building while being introduced to a half-day kindergarten schedule. They will also practice letters, numbers, shapes, and other academic skills, as well as learn about bus safety.

The program is for children who are in the attendance areas of participating elementary schools: Armstrong, Bailey, Cottage Grove, Hillside, Liberty Ridge, Middleton, Newport, Pine Hill, Pullman, Red Rock, Royal Oaks, and Woodbury. The class is not offered at Grey Cloud or Crestview due to summer construction, but students may register for classes at another location.
