Avery Kindergarten Information
A Note from Dr. Peterson
Welcome to the Avery Family!
We are so excited to meet and get to know you and your child(ren). We know transitioning from preschool to Kindergarten can be both exciting and also a bit unnerving. Our hope is that this communication helps guide you to necessary information and links in order to assist in this transitional time.
Please know we are here every step of the way to ensure a smooth transition for both the incoming Kindergarten students and also for you!
Hannah Peterson, Ed.D.

For the 2024-25 school year Adventure Club enrollment will be an online system, and students will be selected via lottery. This is to provide all families a more equitable opportunity to utilize this in-demand program.
