START SCHOOL READY - Kindergarten Readiness Camp

The move from pre-K to Kindergarten is one of the most important transitions a child will make. Sandyview Elementary is excited to be partnering with Ready for School this summer as a host site to deliver a readiness camp with powerful results. This four-week, half-day program is for incoming Kindergarten students and will run July 5 - July 29, Monday through Thursday. Priority for a spot in the program will be given to children who live in the Holland, Zeeland, or Hamilton school districts who have little-to-no preschool experience. Partial to full scholarships are available to children who are registered for Kindergarten in those same districts and who qualify based on financial need. Flyer is attached for more information.
