KINDERFEST 2016 – January 23rd at Shoreline Center
Kinderfest is an opportunity for parents who will be enrolling their children in kindergarten to hear about the kindergarten program offered by the Shoreline School District. Kinderfest will be held Saturday, January 23, 2016 from 10:00am to noon in the Shoreline Room at the Shoreline Center, 18560 – 1st Ave NE.
Kindergarten registration for Shoreline residents with students starting kindergarten in the fall of 2016 will begin Monday, February 1st at all elementary schools. You will need to register at your neighborhood/home school. In order to attend kindergarten in the fall, a child must be five years old by August 31, 2016. All elementary schools in the district will have kindergarten visitations on January 27, 2015 at 9:30am. Letting your home school know that you are attending the visitation is not necessary, but highly appreciated for planning purposes.
Shoreline School District is again closed to new non-residents in grades K-6.

From the Principal
Your students are working hard to finish up important learning for first semester, ending February 4. They are also learning to manage themselves and be compassionate. We had a spirited assembly honoring Dr. King, and we encourage families to talk about Monday’s ‘day of service.’ Take care and hope to see you soon – Mr. T
