Kindergarten at

B. Everett Jordan Elementary

Welcome to B. Everett Jordan. We are excited to have you join our BEJ Tiger Cub family.

Kindergarten Orientation

This year's Kindergarten Orientation will take place on Wednesday, August 18 from 5:30 until 6:30. We will share important information about the upcoming school year and answer any questions you may have. Families will have the opportunity to meet all of our Kindergarten teachers and tour the school. We also invite you to join us for our annual Ice-Cream social at 6:30. This is a great opportunity for students, families, and staff to get to know one another.

*Masks will be required for Orientation. We will host our ice-cream social outside.

Kindergarten Registration

The Kindergarten Registration window for the 2021-2022 school year is now open. If you have a child who will be 5 years old on or before August 31, 2021, he or she is eligible to attend kindergarten. If you have not already registered to attend kindergarten, you may do so by clicking on the blue button below. It will take you to our ABSS Kindergarten Registration Portal.

Staggered Entry

All kindergarten students at BEJ will follow a staggered entry on the first two days of school. This means that half of the students will attend on Monday, August 23 and the other half will attend on Tuesday, August 24. During these days, students will begin to learn the daily routines and procedures. They will also spend time in each of our kindergarten classrooms and get to know all of our kindergarten teachers. During these days, teachers will assess students individually using our district kindergarten screening tool. Information will be used to create final class roles. Final classroom assignments will be shared via the Blackboard Connect System on Tuesday evening. All students will attend on Wednesday, August 25 and report to their assigned classroom.
