Kindergarten

The first day of school is just around the corner. There is something special about preparing for the beginning of another school year. Particularly special is the first day of kindergarten, the start of a new journey for our little ones. It is with great joy that we welcome you to our Northgate family!

Some of you may have many questions and might be a bit anxious about this new journey; others are already on this path and maybe know a little bit more. In order to make the enrollment process enjoyable and make the transition to Kindergarten as smooth as possible, we have scheduled several opportunities for us to get to know our newest students and families and for you to get to know our school community. 

Our Kindergarten screening process will be conducted in individual 30-minute sessions at each Elementary School. Screenings are held on the first two days of school for the school district. Students will report to their assigned school building on the scheduled day and time for the screening. On these two days, students will only attend school during the screening appointment as Kindergarten is not in session. The first full day of  Kindergarten is Friday, August 23 and students should report to their assigned school building at 8:05 am and will be dismissed at 2 pm for a special celebration.

2019 Kindergarten Schedule

Parents are invited to our Welcome to Kindergarten Celebration at 2 pm on Friday, August 23. This will provide our families with the opportunity to spend time with our teachers, support staff and other kindergarten parents. At the end of the celebration, your child will receive their welcome gift and class assignment.
