Kindergarten Staggered Entry Plan
Your child will attend only one full day during the first week of school so that teachers can do an initial assessment. The goal of the initial assessment is to promote student success through early identification of developmental needs and styles to provide an academically stimulating program to all kindergarten students. All kindergarten students will be assessed in five areas: language and literacy, math, social-emotional, fine motor and gross motor development. The small group environment will also help ease your child's transition to kindergarten.
Please see the schedule below to determine what day, during the first week of school, your child will be attending.

Reading at Home
In order to succeed in the classroom -- and in life -- our children must develop strong reading skills at an early age. It's a process that happens at home as well as school. Parental involvement in encouraging a love of reading and good reading habits is essential!
WCPSS's Curriculum and Instruction Department has produced these eleven short videos to give parents some tips about how best to support their children as they develop into strong readers. Each video is one to three minutes long, and can be viewed using the free QuickTime Reader from Apple.

Talking and Listening - having a strong foundation in spoken language
Reading Together - making it a daily routine
