Welcome to Kindergarten

We would like to welcome you to the Marion Center Area School District and our Kindergarten program.  Kindergarten is a very exciting time for children and their families!  The first steps in a child's school career can be filled with excitement, anticipation, and some level of anxiety.  Our primary goal for the start of the year is to help children and families feel comfortable in our schools. 

We have two elementary buildings in our district, each providing full day kindergarten programs.  Our full day kindergarten offers both a comprehensive academic program and a developmental approach to children's social development. We believe that children entering kindergarten need time and activities to develop social skills, friendships, and cooperative interaction skills as they learn skills to prepare them for academic learning.

If you are a new parent to our school system, we recommend the following informational packet, A guide to student Success, to provide an overview about what your child will be learning:
