Did you know that when students and their parents visit kindergarten before the start of school, it allows families to help prepare their children for a smooth start?
This year for the first time, children across Jackson and Josephine counties will visit their future kindergarten classrooms during the week of March 7th -11th. The Kindergarten Launch is coordinated by Southern Oregon Early Learning Services (SOELS) early learning hub with local school district superintendents through Southern Oregon ESD.
During the launch week, parents will be given materials and suggestions they can do at home to help their child be ready to succeed and have fun at kindergarten. Visiting kindergarten early is a great first step that will help parents better prepare their children for kindergarten.
Contact your local school or district for specific days and times to visit your elementary school.
