Kindergarten Connect Wordle

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

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

The goal is to use this information to create kindergarten classes and
begin the year knowing as much about each child as possible

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

Appointments will be scheduled through Find your child's school below, click on Make an Appointment and choose a time that works for your family. If your family is unable to make an appointment at your child's school on either of the days listed, please call the school at the beginning of August to make other arrangements.
