Jump Start is a pre-kindergarten, transitional program conducted in August for children preparing to enter kindergarten in September. There is no charge for this program, and it is open to all registered kindergarten students. All Edmonds elementary schools will be offering Jump Start for the 2017 - 2018 school year.
The focus is on preparing your child for success in kindergarten - familiarizing your child with the school environment, the kindergarten teachers, and the daily schedule. Children will be involved in typical kindergarten classroom activities, tour the school campus, and experience outdoor play just like they will at recess. This fun, positive experience helps our kindergarten students become familiar with school before school begins. It supports students and families for a positive transition into kindergarten.
Jump Start is a one week program that takes place at your child’s school.
Tentatively, Jump Start will be taking place for the 2017-2018 school year:
AUGUST 21 - 25, 2017
9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
All Elementary Schools
Students attend Jump Start without their parents. They will be involved in a variety of kindergarten activities, including art, music, handwriting, math, story time, and outdoor play. Students MUST BE REGISTERED for school before Jump Start begins in order to participate. Transportation is not provided during Jump Start. Parents will be advised to attend a parent orientation on one day during Jump Start (check with your school for date and time).
For more information please contact the school in which your child is registered.
