Elkhorn Public Schools (EPS) is pleased to offer “Kindergarten 101” as a jump-start for qualifying students entering kindergarten in the upcoming school year. This three-week, no cost program is primarily designed to serve children who have limited preschool experience or who demonstrate a need for additional support in building the skills necessary for kindergarten.  This includes students who qualify as English learners and students who meet free and reduced-priced lunch requirements. Although priority will be given to students who meet these criteria, a limited number of students may also be enrolled as peer models.  The program will be led by EPS teachers and will closely resemble a regular Kindergarten daily structure.

Kindergarten 101 will be held Monday through Friday from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. from July 15 – August 2 at Hillrise and Fire Ridge elementaries.  Applications are due Friday, April 26, and must be emailed to Melissa Mehlmann at mmehlmann@epsne.org or submitted to the main office of your assigned elementary school. Parents will be notified via email if their child has been accepted into Kindergarten 101 by May 17th, 2024.

Applications can be found here and should be returned to your assigned school building or emailed to Melissa Mehlmann at mmehlmann@epsne.org.
