The new school year is almost here! We are excited to be welcoming back returning students, and we look forward to making the new kindergartners part of the Stetson Elementary family. Starting kindergarten is a big milestone, and we'd like to share some important information with you regarding kindergarten.
Important Kindergarten Dates to Remember:
Tues., Aug. 1 - Students will be assigned a specific time for beginning-of-the-year testing. Be on the lookout for a postcard with your assigned time.

Students with a last name starting with A - M should plan to attend the session from 9:00 - 10:00 a.m. Students with a last name starting with N - Z should plan to attend 10:30 - 11:30 a.m. This is the day you can bring supplies to school.
