Kindergarten Jump Start

August 21-24, 2018
Tuesday through Friday
8:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.

Ferndale has an exciting program designed for all registered students entering Kindergarten in the fall. The transition “Jump Start” program is designed to help your child move from preschool to Kindergarten with ease, comfort and feel safe in his/her new school family. During the 4 day program, your child will work in small groups and build relationships with new friends and the kindergarten staff.

Jump Start week will allow children to:

  • Experience a typical school day
  • Learn routines & rituals
  • Meet new friends
  • Meet Kindergarten staff

Free ​Breakfast and Free Lunch will be available daily in our cafe for children (and all summer long through the Meet Up & Eat Up Summer Food Program.) Lunches will not be sent home.

Please note: Students must have all enrollment papers into FPS Administration and have their kindergarten immunizations prior to attending the Lower Elementary “Jump Start” Kindergarten Program. 


If your child lives within the boundaries of Ferndale School District, there will be free bus transportation. If your child is a Schools of Choice student, you must provide transportation to and from school. You will receive transportation details in the mail prior to the start of “Jump Start” week.
