Welcome from the Superintendent
Starting kindergarten is a big step in a child’s life. It’s the beginning of a new and exciting journey with challenges and rewards all along the way. For parents, kindergarten is a time of new beginnings and new communications between home and school.
On behalf of the Farmington Area Public Schools, I am thrilled to welcome you to our school community. Our schools have a tradition of excellence, and our comprehensive kindergarten program is part of that strong foundation. Our kindergarten teachers are ready to start the journey with your child to help them become successful, confident learners. We’re all looking forward to getting to know you and your child personally in the coming months.
The information contained on these webpages has been created to provide you with important information about kindergarten in Farmington Area Public Schools. Throughout these pages you’ll learn more about what our kindergarten program has to offer, and we’ll also provide tips to help make the transition to kindergarten more successful and rewarding for your child and for you. In addition, there are opportunities for you and your child to visit our schools, meet our teachers and staff, and learn about kindergarten. More details about these activities are mailed home in January from your school and will appear on your school’s website.
Farmington kindergarten programs provide a safe, nurturing and challenging environment where children can acquire knowledge and skills, think creatively and critically, appreciate diversity, and develop positive attitudes about themselves and others. Each program incorporates basic concepts of the core academic subjects including: Literacy, Writing, Math, Social Studies, Science, Music and the Arts, Health, Technology, Physical Education, and Social Skills. If you have questions or concerns about your child’s education, please call your school’s principal.
We look forward to partnering with you throughout your child’s educational journey. We warmly welcome you to Farmington Area Public Schools.
Jay Haugen, Superintendent of Schools
