New Kindergarten Students Invited to Meet Staff in May
NEWPORT, OR — April 18 –New this year, Lincoln County School District elementary schools are hosting a special event just for incoming kindergartners. Each family with a child who will be 5 years of age by September 1st are encouraged to attend. Participants will meet kindergarten teachers, enjoy a “taste” from the school menu, find a bus, explore the playground and connect with many local resources.
“We had a committee develop this event as a way to ease the big transition to being a kindergartener. Our hope is that by attending “A Taste of Kindergarten,” the kids will be less overwhelmed by the building, buses and eating in the cafeteria. They will also get to meet our kindergarten teachers before coming back for registration at the end of summer,” according to Kristin Becker, Principal of Yaquina View Elementary and Taste of Kindergarten committee member.
Each of the area elementary schools has event(s) planned:
Monday, May 14 or Monday, May 21 from 5:30 PM to 6:30 PM
