Como Kindergarten

Transition to Kindergarten Video


Welcome to Kindergarten at Como Park Elementary!  We offer all day Kindergarten classes and focus on teaching the whole child.  Here at Como Park, staff work to meet every child's social, emotional, and academic needs. Classrooms are supported by both a licensed teacher and expert teaching assistants. Our rigorous curriculum centers on reader's, writer's and math workshops. We offer play-based exploration to support academic learning and provide multiple modes for students to express their understandings. Differentiated opportunities in small groups allow us to meet all student learning needs. Specialist teachers work in partnership with us to round our curriculum in Art, Music, STEM, Technology and Physical Education.  We look forward to working with you and your child to make this a successful school year!
