Looking for Information on Kindergarten
What is Jump Start?
Jump Start is a FREE transition-to-kindergarten experience where your child will come to school each morning for a week before school officially starts. During this week, your child will become familiar with the school building, meet new friends, learn school routines, play games and practice new skills, and get to know some of the school staff. We have not made classroom assignments yet, so please know that your child may end up being assigned to a different teacher than the one teaching Jump Start.
When will Jump Start happen?
Our Jump Start is scheduled for the week of August 18-22, from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm each morning. Unfortunately, the school district is unable to provide transportation.
Incoming Kindergarten Meet & Greets at the Park: Please join us for the opportunity for you and your child to meet other Kindergarteners and their parents. A few "veteran" parents will be on hand to answer questions. These play dates will take place Sunday, August 24th 10 a.m. - 12 p.m. and Wednesday, August 27th 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. at East Queen Anne Playground (a.k.a. Little Howe Park) 1912 Warren Avenue North.
Do You Love Books? Then we have a job for you! We are in need of a special person to coordinate the Book Fair that will be hosted by the John Hay library this Fall. The primary responsibility is organizing volunteers to help set up, take down and run the cash registers for the three days the Book Fair occurs. So invite all your friends! It’ll be fun! For more information please e-mail the librarian, Janet Schooler.

Lunch Account Information: An easy and convenient way to keep track of your child’s lunch account is to log onto www.PayPAMS.com and set up an account using your child’s 10-digit student ID number. You can then make payments using a visa or MasterCard and receive email notifications when your child’s account is running low. Students must pay for meals at the time of purchase. Checks are payable to Nutrition Services. Thank you for your support of school meals and I look forward to serving your student next year.
