The information sessions will: * Teach you how to get your child registered for kindergarten

* Provide you with tips to prepare your child for kindergarten * Provide you with an opportunity to ask questions

* Introduce you to school staff

You'll want to attend with your child's: * immunization record

“It’s important that families attend Kindergarten Launch so that they can connect with their neighborhood school,” says Director of Elementary Student Achievement Jeanne Grazioli. "We want to get to know our kindergarten students and families before school begins, and begin to engage them in activities and events at the school. It will be an informative and exciting evening!”
