Countdown to Kindergarten March 7
First day of Kindergarten

Parents and guardians who will have children in kindergarten in the 2020-21 school year are invited to learn about transitioning to kindergarten by attending this year's Olympia School District "Countdown to Kindergarten" event.

The annual event will be held from 10-11:30 a.m. on Saturday, March 7 at Capital High School. The school is located at 2707 Conger Ave. N.W. in Olympia.

Countdown to Kindergarten begins in the high school theater at 10 a.m. with a welcome by Olympia School District Superintendent Patrick Murphy. He will be followed with a presentation by Executive Director of Elementary Education Autumn Lara.

After the presentation, families are invited to walk through an information fair in the school Commons. During the fair, families can meet staff from elementary schools around the district and learn more about:


  • Registering for kindergarten;
  • Using Skyward Family Access (the district’s Student Information System);
  • Riding the bus;
  • Alternative kindergarten program options;
  • Before- and after-school child care; and
  • Community partner services. 


Please note that this event is geared toward adults, although children are welcome. Child care is not provided.
