Registered for Kindergarten? Now you can sign up for Kindergarten Camp!

July 19 - 22, our incoming kindergartners have the opportunity to attend camp at their school for four days. They will learn their way around the school, participate in fun activities, enjoy breakfast and lunch and get to know the kindergarten teachers. They will be ready to learn on the first day of "real" school!

After you register your child for kindergarten and receive an application number, you may go to the Kindergarten Camp link below. You must be registered for kindergarten and have the application number before you can register for Kindergarten Camp.
