Kindergarten Jump Start Program

Kindergarten is such a critical year, therefore District 89 is committed to providing your child a Jump Start to Kindergarten for a successful start to their educational journey! We are thrilled to be offering a Kindergarten Summer Program to support your child in preparing for this upcoming school year.

Please click here to complete the survey to express your interest in having your child attend.

In order to ensure the effectiveness of the program, children must be able to attend from July 12 through August 5th, Monday through Thursday from 9:00am to 11:30am. Space will be limited to 10 students per elementary school; therefore, the selection will be based upon the date the survey was completed and homeschool.

Due to construction in some of our schools we have selected the following locations:

  • Garfield
  • Lincoln
  • Melrose Park
  • Jane Addams
  • Van Buren

Parents will be responsible for transportation; however, all efforts will be made to assign a location near your families homeschool.
We will also, strive to group students based on their homeschool so they can start to build friendships with their potential classmates.

Thank you for taking the time to complete the survey. We will be connecting with you in the upcoming weeks regarding your child’s placement.
