KUHS Builiding Update February 2017

Do you know families who have a child entering Kindergarten at Conger, Mills, Pelican, or Roosevelt in September? If you do, please feel free to this informational flier with those families! 

Klamath Falls City Schools hopes to reach families and children who would benefit from our Ready! for Kindergarten activities. Our goal is to answer questions families may have about kindergarten, to build positive relationships with families entering City Schools, and to provide parents with tools and strategies that will help them prepare their child for kindergarten! 

This flyer is in English and Spanish. We have space for 40 families. There are wonderful "take-away's" for every participant!

Dinner will be served at each event and childcare will be provided to ensure that parents have time to talk with teachers and other parents about Kinder Readiness.

Thank you for your help in spreading the word!
