White River School District

Thank you for your interest in the READY! for kindergarten program. White River is excited to be able to offer this series of early learning opportunities for the families in our community. We began READY! for Kindergarten in the Spring of 2010. Since then we have had over 200 families participate in READY! and are excited to help you get your child ready for kindergarten. Each of our elementary schools will be hosting the 4/5 year old series of classes in Fall/Winter/Spring. We would like to have families commit to coming to all three classes in the series to get the most from the program for your child and family. Please register for classes at your home school.  All of our classes are grant funded and offered at no cost to families, staff, or students who are  in the White River School District.

READY! for Kindergarten classes for the 2016-2017 school year start in November. Families are asked to make a commitment to coming to all three sessions. Classes are held at ALL of our Elementary Schools families are encouraged to register for READY! for Kindergarten.

There are 3 classes in the series. Click on "Sign up for classes" tab to the right to register.
