Kindergarten Roundup at Kokomo Schools is designed as a fun and informative family event. Kokomo-Center’s 7 elementary principals and many Kindergarten teachers are gathering for this event, Thursday (April 25th) from 5 to 7 pm at Lafayette Park Elementary School, which is located at 919 N. Korby Street (two blocks north of Jefferson Street and two blocks west of Phillips Street).
According to Assistant Superintendent Pennye Siefert, Roundup activities and information will be shared to inform parents about Kokomo Schools many new and exciting choices, which include: 1 to 1 technology schools, international schools, an integrated arts school, a KEY gifted and talented program for K-8 students, and traditional schools.
“In each of these schools, kindergartners will experience interactive and engaging learning,” Mrs. Siefert noted.
Kindergarten Roundup activities at Lafayette Park Elementary Thursday, April 25th will include making a craft in a kindergarten classroom, eating snacks in the school cafeteria, and taking a pretend school bus ride.
If your child will be 5 years old on, or before, August 1, 2013, don’t miss this opportunity to help your 5 year old feel comfortable on his or her first days at kindergarten.
Kokomo-Center officials plan to help parents learn what forms they will need to enroll their kindergartner this fall and they will help parents schedule an appointment for a kindergarten screening.
Please join Kokomo-Center Schools for Kindergarten Roundup Thursday, April 25th, from 5 to 7 pm at Lafayette Park Elementary School.
