Kindergarten Visitation:

Kindergarten Visitation will be held on Thursday, May 26th at 6:00 pm. This event welcomes incoming kindergarten students and their family as we share what a day in the life of a kindergartener looks like at Ogden. Families will meet our kindergarten teachers and visit the classrooms. We will also share specific school information and provide details about the Jump Start program happening Aug. 15 – 19th. Please help spread the word to any family that has a five-year old starting school this fall!

Family Survey:

We want to hear your thoughts about important school characteristics including academic preparation, student support, family engagement, safety, accessibility of school leaders and equity. Please help us identify what’s working well and what could be improved by taking the family survey.

If you have children in multiple schools, please complete one survey for each school. The survey will close at 8 p.m. on Friday, May 27. Thank you for making the time to take the survey!
