Incoming Kindergarten Family Information Night

Tuesday, May 21, 2019, 7:00pm (Neighborhood Schools)


Parents/guardians of incoming students are invited to attend a presentation by the kindergarten teachers, school nurse, PTO/PTA (Parent-Teacher Organization/Association) president, and school principal. You will learn about the school’s core values and culture, daily life in kindergarten classrooms, and how to get involved in the school’s PTO/PTA. Nuts and bolts information about state-mandated screenings and immunizations will be shared as well, and you’ll have plenty of opportunities to ask questions.


Kindergarten Open House

Wednesday, May 22, 2019, 1:00pm (Neighborhood Schools)


At this event, you and your child will meet school staff as well as other incoming kindergarteners and their parents. If possible, please leave younger siblings at home to make this a special time for you and your kindergarten child. 


Kindergarten Screenings

Late May - Early June (Neighborhood Schools)


All incoming kindergarteners participate in state-mandated screenings of visual, auditory, motor, and language skills as well as vision and hearing functions. Children are screened in small groups by a classroom teacher or by another qualified staff member. The process only takes about twenty minutes, and most children really enjoy the experience.


Wheels on the Bus

Tuesday, June 11 or Thursday, August 15, 6:00pm (Little Theater at Westwood High School)


Led by Westwood’s School Resource Police Officer Brad Pindel, this information session gives students the chance to board a real school bus and learn about safe bus behavior. No pre-registration is required. Parents and their kindergartners can choose to attend either session.
