LCSD’s summer LIFT kindergarten program applications available soon

The free Summer LIFT program for children entering kindergarten this fall will be held for four weeks in each area of the county and led by certified Lincoln County School District teachers.

“LIFT: Learning is Fun Together!” is a kindergarten readiness class for children 3-5 and their parents.

LIFT is based on the philosophy that parents are the most important teachers of their children and that young children learn primarily through play. LIFT classes provide a variety of play-based learning activities that help children reach their potential and be prepared for school.

The program presents an opportunity for children with little to no preschool experience and/or those who might need additional support to successfully transition to kindergarten.

Applications for enrollment will be available Monday, May 13, at the elementary schools’ “Taste of Kindergarten” events.

On Tuesday, May 14, applications will be posted on the LCSD website and available for pick-up at the following schools: Oceanlake, Toledo Elementary, Crestview Heights Elementary and Yaquina View.

LCSD elementary schools are hosting a special event just for incoming kindergartners. Each family with a child who will be 5 years of age by September 1, 2019, 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.

Each of the area elementary schools have events planned:
