Fun Activities and Service Projects

Students attend daily activities including Library, Physical Education, Guidance, Computer Lab, and Music.  Each year we also choose two community projects to participate in depending on the needs of the community.

Parent Involvement

We expect parents to be actively involved in their child’s Kindergarten experience. Parents can check their folder nightly, assist with homework, review daily classwork, and reading to them.
