    Ready, Set, Kindergarten (RSK) • 8:30 - 11:30 a.m.
    A kindergarten readiness program that strengthens students' literacy and math skills. Materials, bus, and snacks are provided free of charge. In 2019, RSK will be held at Apollo, Mark Twain, Melzer, Nelson, and Washington Elementary Schools. In general, students attend the program at their home school - but due to construction, Melzer and Washington students will attend RSK at Nelson. Buses stop in front of each student’s home to pick up and drop off. Teachers ride the buses on the first day of the program to assist the students on and off the bus. Parents must respond to invitation by the deadline (noted in the invitation) - and must submit kindergarten medical forms to the Health Office before the first day of RSK.
