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 18th through August 5th at Manchester and Fire Ridge elementaries.  

Applications can be found below and must be emailed to Deb Madden at dmadden@epsne.org or submitted to the main office of your assigned elementary school by April 29, 2022. Parents will be notified via email if their child has been accepted into Kindergarten 101 by May 20, 2022.

If you have any questions, please contact Deb Madden, Instructional Facilitator, at dmadden@epsne.org.
