SJSD Parent Information MeetingEvery elementary school hosts a kindergarten parent information meeting night during the spring. We strongly encourage you attend these meetings at your home school. During the Parent Information Night, parents will be able to schedule an enrollment appointment. For those unable to attend the parent information night, an enrollment appointment must be made directly with the child's school before the start of the upcoming school year.Kinder Club is an SJSD event held once a month in collaboration with Success By Six. Any parent with a child that will be kindergarten eligible the next school year is invited to attend monthly Kinder Club sessions. At these sessions, parents and children work together during an hour long session to build a foundation of pre-academic skills preparing for the transition to kindergarten. The topics of activities include Concepts of Math, Developmental Stages of Writing, Fine/Gross Motor skills, Self-Help activities, Language and Literacy, and Social Interactions. During each session, the parents are educated as to how to scaffold their children toward each developmental milestone and students are given the supplies used during the session to support their learning at home. If you are interested in registering for Kinder Club, please contact United Way's Success By 6 at (816) 364-2381.Kindergarten Handbook
