Kindergarten Jump Start Summer School

This summer we are excited to offer our Kindergarten Jump Start Summer School Program. This program is offered to registered Kindergarteners that will be attending one of our elementary schools for the 2018/19 school year. There is no charge for this summer program! Registration forms are available at the District office, 272 E. Sagebrush Street, Litchfield Park, AZ 85340.

What is Jump Start?

Jump Start is a way to help children and their families begin school ready – and excited – about learning. It is a three-week experience for new kindergarteners to become familiar with a school building, staff, and typical school-day activities and practices. Jump Start helps young children experience joyful learning, learn school readiness behaviors, and become more comfortable with the school environment. Jump Start helps teachers get to know students better and assess students’ skills and strengths.

Curriculum Information:

Learning will be based on the Arizona Early Learning Standards and our preschool curriculum (PATHS – Social Emotional Program, Learning Dynamics – Phonemic Awareness and Phonics Program). The teachers will plan closely together to follow our preschool schedule, including purposeful free centers, circle time, story time, transitions and recess. Each class will have a certified teacher and instructional assistant.


ALL Kindergarten Jump Start Classes will be held at Barbara B. Robey Elementary School - 5340 N. Wigwam Creek Blvd., Litchfield Park, AZ 85340.


Monday – Thursday, June 4-21, 2018 (Times TBD. Classes will be held in the morning for approximately 4 hours).


Will be provided for all students at no cost. However, we will not be able to accommodate food allergies. Students are welcome to bring their own lunch if they have food allergies.


Parents will need to provide transportation to and from Barbara B. Robey Elementary School.
