Welcome Kindergarten Families!


We are pleased to welcome our new Kindergarten students to Hockinson Heights Elementary! Below you will find important information about the beginning of the school year. 

Kindergarten Screening

We hope that you and your child will attend Kindergarten Screening on August 12 and 13. Screening gives us a chance to get to know your child and will help us place them into a Kindergarten classroom that will help make their first school year a wonderful one. Kindergarten screening takes place in the school library. A member of our building staff will meet briefly with your child to assess their academic knowledge. There is no need to prepare for screening. Screening times are scheduled according to the student's last name. Students with last names beginning with letters A-F are scheduled on August 12 from 8 - 10 a.m.  Students with last names beginning with letters G-L are scheduled on August 12 from 12 - 2 p.m.  Students with last names beginning with letters M-R are scheduled on August 13 from 8 - 10 a.m.  Students with last names beginning with letters S-Z are scheduled on August 13 from 12 - 2 p.m.  If you are unable to attend at your scheduled day / time, please feel free to attend one of the other scheduled days / times. The screening should take approximately 20 minutes.

Parent-Teacher Meetings

Each Kindergarten family will have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with their child's teacher prior to the start of school. Parent meetings will be scheduled for August 28 - 30. Our office staff will contact you during the week of August 19 - 23 to set up a time and to let you know about your child's classroom placement. 

First Day of School

The first day of school for Kindergarten students is Tuesday, August 3.  


We look forward to meeting you soon! Should you have any questions, please give our office a call.
