INTRODUCTION

For children turning 5 years of age on or before September 1, 2022, BPS101 kindergarten is open to all BPS101 residents. As we begin the process of welcoming the graduating class of 2035, we will be hosting “meet and greet” sessions at each elementary school prior to the start of school. The purpose of these sessions is to welcome you and your child(ren) to kindergarten and a 13 year partnership with BPS101. We will have time for your child to see their classroom and meet their teacher. We will also give you a primer on school basics such as drop off, pick up, lunches, etc. This will make for a great first day of school! See your school’s calendar for more details.

Here is information about District school boundaries if you are unsure where your student would attend elementary school in our District.

Kindergarten Enrichment

BPS101 hosts a Kindergarten Enrichment Program in-house. The BPS101 Kindergarten Enrichment program coordinates with the District’s Half-Day Kindergarten Program (HDK).
