Welcome to Kindergarten

Our Storrington Kindergarten team is busy preparing to welcome our newest Stingers to Storrington.  On Thursday, June 15, we will be holding our Welcome to Kindergarten for all our junior kindergarten students joining us in September.  This will be an opportunity to visit the Kindergarten classrooms, learn about routines and expectations, and to ride on a school bus.  We look forward to beginning our work with our future Stingers.
