Kindergarten Playdates

We are so excited to welcome in our new Eagles to Kindergarten for the 2024-2025 school year. 

Registration is OPEN! 

Peter Kirk PTSA is hosting 3 more Kindergarten playdates at the Peter Kirk Playground. The first 2 were a huge success.  Come as you are and siblings are welcome! Our Peter Kirk Elementary community-building begins early on, before school even begins for our young ones. For next year's incoming kindergarteners, we have a new private, grade specific Facebook group called Peter Kirk Class of 2037 as well as multiple playdates planned to connect with other incoming kindergarten families.

Peter Kirk hosted Pizza and Popsicles, on May 16, where families came and heard from next year’s Kindergarten teachers and even got to visit a classroom. Registering as early as possible ensures we have the right number of resources and teachers ready to hit the ground running for yet another amazing year. 

Go EAGLES!

Kindergarten playdates: 

Sunday, July 14, from 2-4
