Incoming Kindergarten Parents

We will be having a story time in our library on Tuesday, April 23 and Thursday, April 25th from 1:15 to 1:45 for all incoming kindergarten students.


All Kindergarten students are screened prior to the start of school to assess readiness skills. The screening will take place on May 29th, 30th and 31st. If you did not sign up for a time during registration, please call 781-270-1721 ext. 0 to make an appointment.


On Wednesday, June 5th you and your incoming kindergarten child (no siblings please) are invited to Kindergarten Open House. This will be an opportunity for you and your child to become familiar with the Kindergarten environment and meet the entire staff. At this time, placement has not yet begun so students will visit a classroom or two just to become comfortable with kindergarten rooms.
