• Welcome Class of 2034! 

    During March, all District 203 elementary schools hold Kindergarten Preview. At this special event, you and your child will meet the school’s administrators, the kindergarten teachers, other school personnel, and representatives of parent organizations. While your child remains in the classroom and enjoys a sample of the kindergarten experience, school personnel will meet with you and other parents to share information about the kindergarten program. Due to the nature of this meeting, we respectfully ask that you make childcare arrangements for your younger children during the time of the program.

This information will also include details on how to have any questions you may have answered. We want you to feel prepared and confident with all things kindergarten. We also want this for your child! Therefore, your child’s school is organizing school visits for late summer so your child can explore the classroom, meet the teacher, and be officially welcomed to their school. Of course, you will be invited to attend this special event as well! All the details, including the date and time, will be sent to you by the end of our current school year (June 10, 2021).
