Welcome Mountlake Terrace Elementary Little Hawks!
This is an exciting time in the life of your child – starting school! Though it may be months until your child puts on that backpack and comes to school for their first special day of the 2017-2018 school year, the time to prepare is now.
We offer Tuition-Free FULL DAY Kindergarten at Mountlake Terrace Elementary for ALL of our families!
February 13th – “Kick Off to Kindergarten” Information Night - Please join us in our school library from 6:30- 7:30PM. We will provide information about the registration process and Kindergarten at Mountlake Terrace Elementary. Your Kindergarten student is welcome to attend, but the meeting is really for parents. (Child care for children aged 3-7 is available at no cost.) Spanish interpretation will be available.
May 10th – Additional “Kick Off to Kindergarten” Meeting – 11:45 AM – 12:45 PM in our school library. This will be a presentation of the same information provided at the February 13th meeting. No child care will be available at this meeting.
August 21st - 25th Jump Start to Kindergarten - A week of school in August!
We are very proud at Mountlake Terrace Elementary of our annual Jump Start to Kindergarten program. This program brings incoming Kindergartners to Mountlake Terrace Elementary for a week. They have the whole place to themselves to experience life on our campus, become familiar with caring staff members, and build bond with new friends.
We also get a chance to know your children to help place them in the very best classroom for their strengths and needs. Please note that Jump Start will take place at the Woodway Elementary site (our location for the 2017/18 school year). Please plan to make every effort to have your child attend all five days. We notice a real difference in students’ experience when they are able to participate in Jump Start. We can’t wait to get to know your child!
August 21st - Kindergarten Parent Orientation
Jump Start isn’t just for your kids; you get to take part as well! We offer our Parent Orientation just after you drop your students at class for Jump Start. Please plan to join us on Monday, August 21st - 9 AM in the Woodway Library.
