Connect to Kindergarten

Connect to Kindergarten is a great opportunity for parents of incoming Kindergartners to learn about their neighborhood school and its kindergarten program. At the event you'll have the opportunity to meet the kindergarten and administrative staff, and register your child for school. With parent volunteers on hand, it is a great chance to ask questions about daily routines, parent involvement, school events, and before/after school care. It is also the perfect time to meet other parents of incoming kindergarten students. The more you learn, the more confident you and your child will feel on the first day of school!

The information about the upcoming Connect to Kindergarten session for the 2023-2024 school year at Beverly Cleary School will be updated when available. It usually happens in February. Due to space constraints, Connect to Kindergarten is a "no child" event.​
