Kindergarten Orientation Night is coming soon

The Bainbridge Island School District will host Kindergarten Orientation Night at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 6 in the gym at Ordway Elementary.

Registration forms will be available and program information will be presented on the district's half-day and full-day kindergarten programs.

Bainbridge has a no-cost half-day program for children, and an optional tuition-based full-day program.

The full-day program offers more time for students to cover curriculum in-depth and allows teachers the time to provide additional activities in learning. The cost is $325 a month ($3,250 per year).

Students entering kindergarten must be 5 years old by Aug. 31.

The deadline for applications for the full-day kindergarten program is March 8.

A lottery, if necessary, will be held March 12, and letters of acceptance to the program will be mailed March 15.

School visitation dates have been set for the district's elementary schools in February.

The visitation day at Ordway is 8:45 a.m. Monday, Feb. 11; Captain Johnston Blakely Elementary, 8:15 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 13; and Captain Charles Wilkes Elementary, 8:15 a.m. and 1 p.m. Friday, Feb. 15.
