The Olympia School District will host a “Learn All About Kindergarten” event from 10-11:30 a.m. Feb. 11 at Capital High School, 2707 Conger Ave. NW.
Superintendent Dick Cvitanich will welcome families, who then can visit booths set up in the gym to learn about topics related to kindergarten and school in general, such as program options, how to register for school, and how to use the district’s Family Access student information system. There also will be a school bus on-site so children can see inside the bus and families can learn about school transportation safety and rules.
Children need to be 5 by Aug. 31 to be eligible to start kindergarten for the 2017-18 school year.
The event is geared to adults. Kids are welcome, but child care won’t be provided, according to district spokeswoman Susan Gifford.
