Intro to Kindergarten is a summer enrichment program for incoming K students. This program is intended to prepare students for a successful experience with kindergarten in the fall and will be taught by two of our kindergarten teachers. Students will have the opportunity to become acquainted with the MECC building while practicing school readiness and social skills.  They will learn routines and procedures, meet new kindergarten friends, and get a glimpse of what to expect during the first few days of kindergarten.  We are looking forward to giving the incoming class of 2037 a “kick start” to an amazing year in the fall!
