Transitional Kindergarten students attend the same outings as older children, but there are specific chaperones assigned to them and they are kept in a group by themselves. Kindergarten/first grade, second/third grade, and fourth/fifth grade are considered separate classes and will participate in activities as a class. They will interact with other classes at times as well.

Transitional Kindergarten students take a nap each day. Students must bring all necessary items for napping each day (a sheet, a light blanket, and a sleep buddy).
