ISD 199 strives to make school a welcoming place and a personalized learning experience from each student’s first day. To help students transition when they start at a new school, the district has separate first days for incoming 6th graders, 9th graders, and, starting in the 2018-2019 school year, kindergarten students. The first day of kindergarten will be Thursday, September 6, 2018, two days after school starts for students in grades 1-5. The extra days will help:

  • provide a personalized welcome for each incoming kindergarten student and family
  • introduce families and students to the kindergarten classroom, materials, and routines
  • begin initial assessments to determine student strengths and needs to inform starting points for instruction and goal setting
  • provide more staff and student mentors to support kindergarten students with bussing, meals, navigating the building, and other school routines
