Monday-Thursday, students will develop social emotional, language, literacy, math and science skills for kindergarten readiness as they explore the topic “Our Five Senses.”

Learning Activity Packets

ACPS will provide Pre-K families with a Learning Activity Packet towards the close of the school year to support continued learning over the summer.

The Learning Activity Packet will provide hands-on activity suggestions to do at home as a family. Activities will incorporate pre-academic and social-emotional skills in preparation for kindergarten.

Learning about “Our Five Senses” offers a meaningful way for young children to use early reading skills, math, the arts, and technology to investigate and represent their understanding of important concepts related to science, physical development, and social skills.

Step Up to Kindergarten

All rising kindergarten students will have the opportunity to meet their teacher, see their classrooms, experience a condensed schedule of a typical school day, and tour their school on Friday, August 19, 2022 from 8 a.m.-12 p.m. Lunch will be provided. Note: Students who are eligible for bus transportation will be picked up at their designated stop at the scheduled time. The dismissal time will be different due to the shortened day. The Department of Transportation will provide further information the week of August 15. More details will be posted to the enrollment page on the ACPS website.
