    Kindergarten First Full Day: 9/14/20

    Welcome to Kindergarten!  During the district "Strong Start" schedule, Kindergarten teachers will be connecting with their students to get to know students, as well as doing base level assessments.  Online instruction will begin Monday, September 14th, 2020.  


    Technology for Kindergartners (2020-21)

     All incoming Kindergartners will receive a district owned iPad.  iPad distribution plans are currently being discussed.  Our school leadership and teachers will send out confirmation on when and how you can pick up your child's iPad.  These iPads will be loaded with all the digital tools your child will need for distance learning this year.  It is the expectation of SPS and Wedgwood Elementary that your child use the district device during online learning.  Technology questions can be sent to our Librarian/Tech Specialist, Kristi Leland at

    At this time we are planning to distribute devices before 9/14/20.  Please look for details regarding device pick up from Principal Smith or your child's teacher.

    Kindergarten school supplies at Wedgwood

    In an effort to promote a sense of community, classroom materials will be purchased for the group and shared. Purchasing in bulk through the district, gives us a better price than you would probably find going to multiple places, shopping the back-to-school sales. Families are being asked to pay a supply fee in the fall that will cover your a student's class supplies and Technology fee for the year.  Families will be expected to provide a backpack and lunchbox (if applicable).

    Important Dates:

    • Kindergarten Jump Start 2020: Begins August 17th, 2020. 
    • First Day of School 2020: Kindergartners will begin school on Tuesday, September 8th.  Class begins at 8:30am.
