Helping Your K4 Student

Tips for Parents of K4 Students

  • Set aside a special time each day to read to your child.
  • Visit the local library with your child and consider giving books as gifts.
  • Talk with your child about what they see, hear and feel. Ask questions that demand more than a yes or no answer.
  • Provide your child with opportunities to cut, color, paint, glue and work with play dough under your supervision.
  • Place limits on television watching. Watch programs together and discuss what you have seen.
  • Allow children opportunities to do as much as they can independently.
  • Encourage all attempts at writing.

K4 Outreach Activities

The Junior Kindergarten Outreach Program provides parents/guardians with the opportunity to participate in a variety of fun and educational activities with their son/daughter, above and beyond the regular district offerings. There are approximately 88 hours of activities planned each year which encourage parents to be active participants in their child's education.
