    Hello Sacajawea Kindergarten Families,

    We are excited to welcome you to our Sacajawea Community!  We hope to see all of you at Jump Start –this coming Monday, August 19th through Friday, August 23rd 9:00 AM – NOON.

    Have your child just bring him or herself. No need for backpacks or lunches. Snacks will be provided. We will go outside for recess, so please dress your child appropriately for the weather. If you haven't turned in your health form, we will have extra copies there. If you haven't filled out the Jump Start registration, you can fill that out Monday morning as well.

    This week, your child will get the chance to meet the kindergarten teachers, and other staff including our Art, PE and Librarian.  

     *Parents, on Monday, August 19th at 9 a.m., please join Principal Rachel Friesen in the library for refreshments and a short meet and greet, q&a session.


    What is JUMP START?

    Jump Start is a FREE week-long experience for Kindergartners to learn about school. Children will become familiar with their new school building, staff, typical school day activities and practices. Their parents/guardians will be able to meet with the school principal and ask questions about school. Teachers start to build relationships with students and observe their skills and strengths.

    Jump Start aims to help young children:

    • Experience joyful learning
    • Learn school readiness behaviors
    • Become more comfortable with the school environment
