At Maroa-Forsyth Grade School, our kindergarten classes are excited to begin their educational journey.
Welcome to Kindergarten!
We are looking forward to a year of learning, fun, and growing! Orientation night will begin at 5:30 Monday, August 21. It is beneficial that you and your child attend this important event. You will get to meet your child’s teacher, explore the building, bring school supplies, go over transportation information, and learn about the Kindergarten curriculum and expectations. We will begin our presentation promptly at 5:30, as this is a busy night for all.
Just a few reminders:
School Supply list can be found below.
- If you have not already done so, turn in important health documents to the office.
We cannot wait to meet you and your child to kickoff a great school year!
