Dear 2021-2022 Kindergarten Families,

Welcome to the Bellevue School District! We are thrilled to have your incoming kindergartners join our school community! Kindergarten is such an amazing year of growth for each child, and we look forward to partnering with you on your child’s educational journey!

As a piece of that partnership, each family will have the opportunity to connect with a member of our school kindergarten team in a Family Connections meeting before school starts for kindergartners.  Interviews will be take place between Wednesday 9/1 through Tuesday 9/7.  Please note that the first day of kindergarten (9/3) is different from other students in the Bellevue School District. This is to allow for the Family Connections meetings to occur and to offer a separate first day of school geared for kindergarten only.

You can expect to receive an E-mail inviting you to the Family Connections meeting. As we know that a parent/caregiver is a child’s first teacher, we are excited to learn from you about your child’s strengths and goal areas.

If you would like additional information, please check out the Washington State Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction to learn more about WaKIDS.
