When:  Saturday, March 14th
Where: Tumwater High School Performing Arts Center
Time: 10 – 11:30 AM
We’ll start the morning as a group in the Performing Arts Center, sharing information about Kindergarten; how to register, bus transportation, what a Kindergarten's day looks like, volunteering at school, and much, much more.  After that, you’ll be able to visit with staff from the school your child will attend. You’ll also be able to pick up a registration packet to take home to fill out.
We’ll also have representatives on hand from transportation, health services, food services, and student support services to answer any questions you might have or to point you to the folks who have the information you need.  
We’ll also have representatives from a variety of community resources including Timberland Library, Boys & Girls Club, TOGETHER!, Headstart, South Sound Reading Foundation, Girl Scouts, Cub Scouts, and several more. We also have a goody bag to share with you containing activities to do with your child, compliments of Tumwater School District.
