Jump Start is a one week/4 day program
AUGUST 23-26, 2021
9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Our program is designed to offer our young students an opportunity to be better prepared for Kindergarten. They will be involved in both academic and social activities that are appropriate to their age group. Learning and fun will be combined to make this productive and exciting.This program is FREE for FES students.
The goal of Jump Start is to help new kindergarten students get acclimated to the school learning environment.
This fun, positive experience helps our kindergarten students become familiar with school before school begins. Providing kids with an early introduction to their teachers, classrooms and classmates helps build confidence and ease the transition so the focus can be on learning once the school year begins. In addition, it supports students and families for a positive transition into kindergarten.
