Annual ‘Kindergarten 101’ parent meetings to inform about transitions, curriculum and more
Broken Arrow Public Schools (BAPS) is pleased to help Kindergarten transition become easier for parents by providing two informational meetings that will focus on what to expect as the new school year approaches. The fourth annual “Kindergarten 101” parent meetings will take place on Monday, May 1 at Leisure Park Elementary located at 4300 South Juniper and Thursday, May 4 at Creekwood Elementary located at 1301 E. Albany St. in Broken Arrow. Both meetings begin at 6 p.m. and will last roughly an hour.
“We will discuss information about curriculum, daily schedules, transportation processes, and all of the nuts and bolts of kindergarten,” Assistant Superintendent of Elementary Education Karla Dyess said. “We encourage all parents with an incoming kindergarten student to attend.”
BAPS is proud to have 14 elementary schools that give students a place to embark upon new adventures in a classroom environment. All children who turn five years old by or on Sept. 1, 2017 are eligible for enrollment as a 2017-18 kindergarten student. Kindergarten enrollment opens May 2. Please note that enrollment will not take place at these meetings.
Current Pre-K students attending BAPS Early Childhood Center (ECC) will not need to re-enroll. Parents will need to update their student's immunization records with their ECC in order for the student to be promoted.
For new students, parents will need to complete the required paperwork and finish the enrollment process at the Enrollment Center, located at 210 N. Main St. For more information on new student enrollment and what to bring to the Enrollment Center, please click here.
Parents do not need to attend both sessions and may choose to attend on the date most convenient for them. For more information, please contact the elementary education division at 918-259-5756.
