Kindergarten Jumpstart
Dear Incoming K Families,
 
We are excited that your child will be joining Van Asselt in the fall. As many of you already know, we are hosting Kindergraten “Jumpstart” from 9-12AM August 18-22, 2014. If you have not done so already, please call 252-7502 or email Jennifer Kovach at jekovach@seattleschools.org to register your child. Once you register, you will be sent forms to complete before your child can attend. Families must provide transportation for these days.
 
During the week, our goal is to help your children feel excited and ready for the start of school. We will show students the building, have children meet the teachers and each other and practice school activities and routines. Students and families will get to meet the principal and assistant principal and other school staff. There will be a light snack in the morning and then lunch will be served to help students get used to eating in the cafeteria.
 
Thank you for taking the time to register your child and we look forward to seeing you on August 18th!
 
Sincerely yours,
 
Chanda E. Oatis
