Welcome to Kindergarten

Medina City Schools

To the Families of Incoming Kindergarten Students

Welcome to Medina City Schools-home of the Battling Bees. We are excited to have you and your student as part of the Hive.

The transition to kindergarten is an important milestone. The staff at Medina City Schools looks forward to joining you as you begin on this journey. As you prepare your student to enter the halls of their school building, our elementary principals and kindergarten teachers will be a great resource. They will provide you with information that you can incorporate into your everyday routines to support your child as they prepare to start kindergarten. Regularly, they will share Getting Ready for Kindergarten tips and an accompanying video. This will continue to strengthen the skills for school readiness that you have supported your child in developing since they were born.

We look forward to welcoming your child to the District and helping them grow as they begin their time with Medina City Schools.

Weekly tips and resources to prepare for the year ahead

The transition to kindergarten is an important milestone for your child and family. We are excited to join you on this journey. As you think about ways to continue to support your child during this time, we wanted to provide you with resources and ideas that will help prepare your child for kindergarten next fall. We recognize that you are your child's first and forever teacher! The small things you do everyday make a big difference to help your child get ready for school. Everyday routines and playing outside with your child can help develop the skills that prepare children to be a successful learner.

Join us on Medina City School' s Facebook or visit the Medina City School's Getting Ready for Kindergarten page on the district website for weekly tips, ideas, and resources as you prepare for the start of the school year. On the website you will also see a Welcome to Kindergarten book from each of our elementary buildings that you can share with your child.

What Does School Readiness Entail?

School readiness is so much more than knowing your ABCs and 123s. In fact, you have been preparing your child for kindergarten since the moment they were born! The time you spend reading, talking, and playing with your child is building skills he/she needs to be successful learner!
