What Documents Do I Need to Register My Child for Kindergarten or Transitional Kindergarten??

 full-day kindergarten

On April 13, 2017, the Moraga School District Governing Board approved a full-day kindergarten program, commencing the 2017-2018 school year.  The District is pleased to offer this additional time for increased student learning and social development, as well as more time for singing, reading, outdoor activities, and exploration.  A longer school day will also provide more opportunities for students to develop pro-social behavioral skills, including self-regulation, attentiveness, and self-confidence.

Kindergartners will follow the first grade early/late bird, parent conference and minimum day schedule.  School begins at 8:25 AM for early birds and ends at 1:55 PM.  School begins at 9:25 for late birds and ends at 3:05 PM.  All kindergartners will follow the early bird schedule the first three weeks of school as do first graders.  Recess, lunch and other schedules will be planned by each site’s principal and kindergarten staff.  

TRANSITIONAL KINDERGARTEN

The Kindergarten Readiness Act of 2010 legislation requires all California school districts to provide a Transitional Kindergarten program so that children who will be affected by this change -- those with birthdays between September and December -- will have an opportunity to continue building their skills and abilities.  Their time in Transitional Kindergarten will help them to succeed in Kindergarten, become leaders in the classroom and confidently navigate the school day routine.
