Kinder Buddy Program

In 2018, we offered a Kinder Buddy Program for 2018-2019 in which each new kindergarten family will be matched with a buddy family. A personal welcome to the school and additional support in navigating SK will be offered to all Kinder by their buddies over the summer and throughout the start of school.
