LCSD’s ‘A Taste of Kindergarten’ open house scheduled in May

Lincoln County School District elementary schools are hosting a special event just for incoming kindergartners throughout the month of May.

Each family with a child who will be 5 by Sept. 1, are encouraged to attend. Participants will be able to meet kindergarten teachers, enjoy a taste from the school menu, find a bus, explore the playground and connect with many local resources.

“We had a committee develop this event as a way to ease the big transition to being a kindergartener,” Yaquina View Elementary School Principal and Taste of Kindergarten committee member.Kristin Becker said.

“Our hope is that by attending ‘A Taste of Kindergarten,’ the kids will be less overwhelmed by the building, buses and eating in the cafeteria. They will also get to meet our kindergarten teachers before coming back for registration at the end of summer.”
