Kinder Buddy Program

We will also be launching a Kinder Buddy Program for 2017-2018 in which each entering kindergarten student will be matched with a buddy student/family from a higher grade. 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 school year.

Check out our Advice for incoming parents and General Information, and After-School Programs.
