Art: Kindergarten Connect

The Kindergarten Connect event is required for all incoming
2020-21 St. Francis Area Schools kindergartners.

Kindergarten Connect is an opportunity for our kindergarten staff to meet with your child
and learn a little more about their academic and developmental skills.

Our goal is to use this information to create our kindergarten classes and
begin our year knowing as much about each child as we can!

Parents are required
to sign-up online for a
30-minute appointment.
