Kindergarten and Transitional Kindergarten Orientation to be Held


The 2013/2014 orientation meetings for Kindergarten and Transitional Kindergarten will be held in the Burbank Adult School auditorium on Wednesday, January 23, 2013. The same
presentation will be offered at 7:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., and 6:30 p.m., in order to accommodate the schedules of parents and family members.

Each session, which will be hosted by Dr. Tom Kissinger, Burbank Unified School District’s Director of Elementary Education, will cover all areas of interest to parents of incoming students. Specific topics will include: how to enroll, what can be done to prepare your child for the kindergarten year, arranging tours at the different schools, and the curriculum that is covered during the kindergarten year. “This event is a must for parents of our incoming kindergarten and transition classes,” says Kissinger. “We really take the time to answer everyone’s questions, and help them feel comfortable about the upcoming year.”

The presentations will also be attended by site principals and teachers, as well as representatives from parent organizations and the Board of Education. The Director of Special Education will also be in attendance to answer any questions parents may have about accommodations for students with special needs.

The Burbank Adult School is located at 3811 Allan Avenue, Burbank, CA 91505. For more information about this event, please contact Teri Smith, Administrative Secretary in the BUSD Instructional Services Department. She can be reached at: (818) 729-4401.
