Jump Start helps incoming kindergarten students and their parents be ready to start school. This program is free and open to all incoming students who are registered for kindergarten at a Highline elementary school.

Jump Start helps children familiarize themselves with their new school, kindergarten teacher, classmates, and daily schedule before school starts in September.

During Jump Start, each school hosts a family meeting to learn about the school, meet teachers, and find out how to support your child’s learning.
