Kindergarten Transition Program

  • The Lake Oswego School District offers a Kindergarten Transition Program, an optional, registration-based program to provide additional preparation for new Kindergarten students. 
    New kindergarten students learn about kindergarten skills, routines, and expectations while making new friends.  Each elementary school will also have a parent component with the Kindergarten Transition Program which will provide information about Lake Oswego School District, Lake Oswego Schools Foundation, and our local parent support group (PTA/PTO/PTSO).
