What to Expect on April 29th

Meet with our Kindergarten Team!


When we meet with your learner, we will be asking them to:


  • Say their name, age, and birthday
  • Say/sing the alphabet song
  • Write their name
  • Count to 10
  • Tell us about things they like and don't like



Please know that being able to do these things is not a prerequisite for entering Kindergarten at Cascade Schools. Asking these things helps our team to assess needs for the class prior to starting the school year in the Fall.
