Students arriving for the first day of Kindergarten Readiness Camp in the District were greeted by smiling faces and new friends.
The camp is designed to prepare students for the transition into Kindergarten. Families with children registered for the Kindergarten program for the 2019-2020 School Year were provided with free transportation to the elementary school to which their child is assigned. Once there, students will receive both breakfast and lunch, have the opportunity to meet their new classmates and teachers and familiarize themselves with their news classrooms and school.

Have teachers who possess the education and expertise to instruct young children;
Use a curriculum designed to help children grow academically and socially;

On Thursday, May 23, students at State Street Elementary participated in their first ever Move-Up Day! During this time, rising first through fifth graders visited their future classrooms to meet the teachers and learn more about what to expect next school year. Students enjoyed following the next grade’s lunch schedule and eating at their new tables!
State Street Elementary was treated to Ms. Marissa from Children's Hospital Injury Prevention Department. Ms. Marissa shared first hand with our students the importance of safety first no matter what they are doing. She reviewed the rules of "Bicycle Safety," the importance of wearing a helmet and how to do so correctly. She taught the students the ways to signal when riding their bikes. Swimming rules and diving rules were addressed as well as other important safety issues for the summer.
