National Kindergarten Day was Friday, April 21, and it was a chance to celebrate how Dallas ISD kindergarten prepares students for lifelong success.
Kindergarten classrooms across the district celebrated by wearing Class of 2029 stickers.
Dallas ISD kindergarten is full day, and there are still bilingual options. Dallas ISD kindergarten builds on what students love about pre-K—center-based learning, plenty of time to have fun and play with their peers—while the skills and academic content gets more rigorous.
“Even though kindergarten is voluntary, it’s critically important because it gives students the building blocks they need to succeed in life,” said Derek Little, assistant superintendent of Early Learning. “Students who attend Dallas ISD pre-K and kindergarten start first-grade with a big head start on their peers.”
Every Dallas ISD elementary school offers full-day kindergarten. Parents can go here to register online starting June 1.
