Right Start

The 2023 session of Right Start will be Monday, June 12th and Tuesday, June 13th.

Your child is invited to McKinley Elementary School early this summer to participate in an exciting program.  We know that kindergarten is a BIG step for little feet and families, so we would like to offer you a little “jump start” to your child’s kindergarten year.  You will have the opportunity to choose one of the 3 sessions offered for your child. Each session will run June 12th & 13th for 1 ½  hours each day.

We are hoping that the Kindergarten “Right Start” program will alleviate a few butterflies in the tummy the first day of school for both you and your child.  Through this program, your child will have an opportunity to become acquainted with his/her new school while participating in developmentally appropriate hands-on activities both inside and out.  He/she will take a tour of the school while on a “bear hunt”, have snack in the cafeteria, explore in the gym, meet new friends, and really begin to take ownership and build excitement for the year ahead. 

We look forward to meeting you and partnering with you in the on-going, wonderful adventure of learning! 

Right Start forms can be returned the evening of kindergarten registration or mailed to McKinley School’s office by mail at 724 W. Laurel St., Fergus Falls, MN 56537. Please call Scott Colbeck at McKinley Elementary if you have any further questions, 218-998-0544, extension 9301.

You will receive a letter in May confirming your child’s session time.
