Kindergarten & Transitional Kindergarten Jumpstart Information

July 8, 2024


Dear Incoming Kindergarten and Transitional Kindergarten Abbie Grove Parents/Guardians,

Welcome to Abbie Grove and the Ankeny Community School District learning community! In kicking off a great year of learning, we are excited to invite you and your child to attend our upcoming Kindergarten/Transitional Kindergarten (K/TK) Jumpstart. This experience gives your child an opportunity to meet our K/TK teachers, see the classrooms, and get a short sneak peak of kindergarten/transitional kindergarten. It also allows a parent/guardian to see Abbie Grove Elementary and hear important information to start the year. 

Only one parent/guardian is needed to attend and the incoming kindergarten student. Please do not bring any non-incoming Abbie Grove kindergarten students to this event.

This event will be at Abbie Grove Elementary on Thursday, July 25 from 8:15-9:15, 10:15-11:15 or 1:00-2:00. To register, please select the appropriate link (K or TK) to sign up for one of the three times.
