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 an informational meeting that will focus on what to expect as the new school year approaches. The annual “Kindergarten 101” parent meeting will take place on Tuesday, May 8, at the Broken Arrow Performing Arts Center located at 701 S. Main Street. This meeting will begin at 6:30 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 15 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, 2018, are eligible for enrollment as a 2018-19 kindergarten student. Kindergarten enrollment opens May 1. Please note that enrollment will not take place at this meeting.
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 enroll using the online enrollment portal. The link to this portal will not be available until May 1. Visit the Enrollment Center section of the website for more information on new student enrollment.
