District slates kindergarten roundup

-A A +A

Education > Events prep parents and students

By Tris DeRoma

It’s one of the first milestones a parent experiences in the school career of a child: that moment when they get on that big yellow bus and go off to school for the first time.

It can be a pretty scary experience for both parent and child, but the Los Alamos Public School District appears to have things covered.

Though kindergarten doesn’t start until September, LAPS is conducting its annual “Kindergarten Roundup” sessions in March and April.

According to Assistant Superintendent Paula Dean, the event is designed to prepare everyone involved, including teachers, for how many kindergartners are coming to each school each year and how that figure is going to impact resources. Those eligible for the roundup include children who will turn five by Sept. 1.

The event also aims to help parents prepare for the transition as well.

“The purpose is the same everywhere, and that is to ‘round up’ the kids and their families, and to give the parents and children an idea of what to expect for kindergarten,” Dean said.
