Transitional Kindergarten

Transitional Kindergarten is a new grade that will help children prepare for the academic demands of Kindergarten. It is a two year program with the first year at Joe Nightingale School and the second year at the student's home school. Parents will be responsible for transportation to and from Nightingale, but the times have been staggered to eliminate conflict with other schools. These are 1/2 day schedules with their own curriculum. Check out the Links or Uploads if you have questions.
