|Another step toward success for all students
This week in a celebration of "I Love to Read Month," teachers at one of our elementary schools held a "Minute to Win It" competition among colleagues to the delight of giggling kindergartens. After the competition a thoughtful little girl remarked, "Even though my teacher was the first one out, I still love her."
In the fall we will welcome more than 600 children to kindergarten. Children will fall in love with an outstanding teacher and be secure and challenged in a nurturing classroom. Our schools have among the lowest class sizes in the Twin Cities area at the kindergarten level, part of our community's commitment to help each child start strong.
The White Bear Lake Area School Board is considering a proposal to offer families free all-day, every-day kindergarten, beginning this fall. We currently offer free half-day kindergarten and two fee-based all-day options, Kindergarten Plus and Kindergarten Extended Day. We anticipate a final decision about free all-day kindergarten will be made on March 11, 2013.
We encourage you to learn more about our latest step towards success for all students by visiting our new kindergarten webpage.
