Kickoff to Kindergarten

Kickoff to Kindergarten nights are held each year at all six elementary schools within the Amador County Unified School District.  During these sessions parents have the opportunity to learn more about the expectations of their children entering kindergarten in the fall.

  • A Question & Answer session with kindergarten teachers and/or school principals
  • Activity kits full of school readiness tools
  • Free books to take home along with a lesson on "Dialogic Reading"
  • Developmental Milestones growth charts
