Rescue school district launches Jr. Kindergarten
The Rescue Union School District invites all parents/guardians who reside within the Rescue Union School District boundaries and have students turning 5 between Dec. 2 and March 1, 2011, who would benefit from participation in a kindergarten readiness program prior to regular kindergarten, to contact the school district.
If the offices are closed due to the Winter Break leave contact information and you will be called back.
The new district Jr Kindergarten program begins Jan. 3, and will be held at Jackson Elementary. Students from all schools in the district are encouraged to enroll.
The half-day, morning program is designed to address the social and emotional needs of each student, while providing the skills needed to be successful the following year in kindergarten. In addition to helping young students learn how to interact and build relationships with peers and adults, the curriculum focuses on improving readiness skills in English language arts (reading and writing), mathematics (number sense and problem solving) as well as physical and motor development.
For further information contact the Rescue Union School District office at (530) 677-4461 (for general registration information) or the Jackson Elementary School office at (916) 933-1828.
