Bridge to School

Monday through Thursday, August 14-17, 2017

This program is for children who are enrolled to begin kindergarten in District 196 this September. Classes are held August 14-17 at all of the District's elementary schools. It is designed for children to ease transition into kindergarten. Students will become familiar with their new school environment, teaching staff, classmates and routines of the day. Parents are encouraged to join their child on August 14 for the first hour and a half for interaction and an information session on successfully parenting your kindergartner. Placements are made until capacity is reached. Waitlists will be created and every effort to add sections will be made.
