Preparing for Kindergarten
Ritenour School District is offering a free week-long summer camp to help incoming kindergartners transition to their new school from Aug. 1-5, 2022 at each of the district's six elementary schools.
Students must be enrolled in the district to attend the free program. Parents can pick a morning session (8:30 to 11:30 a.m.) or afternoon session (12:30 to 3:30 p.m.) when they register based on their child’s preschool experience. Students must be 5 years old on or before July 31 to register for kindergarten. The weeklong program will introduce students to entry-level kindergarten skills and ease the transition to school. Other benefits include interacting with future classmates and teachers and allowing them to become familiar with their new school.
This is a very special year in the life of your child. Our kindergarten philosophy is to provide an environment where children feel safe to explore a variety of learning experiences. Children who feel comfortable and confident enjoy learning and develop positive self-images, which are essential to the learning process. We hope you find the kindergarten preparedness resources on this page helpful. Learn how to enroll.
