Families interested in having their incoming kindergarten student participate in the KITS program this summer can find out more information about KITS by attending our KITS Information Night in the Konnie Room at the Fern Ridge Library on April 28th at 6:30 PM.
KITS (Kids In Transition to School) helps students learn the academic, social, and emotional skills that will help them be successful in a classroom setting when they start kindergarten in the fall. The program offers two hour sessions twice a week (Tuesday and Thursday) in July and August. They follow up with one session a week in September/October to help students make the transition into kindergarten. The program also includes a parent component to provide support and help to families during this transition. There is no charge for the program and transportation will be provided. The KITS program is open to students who will be attending kindergarten at either Veneta or Elmira Elementary school this fall.
For more information about the KITS program come to our KITS Information Night on April 28th or contact Angie Trent or Olivia Johnson at 541-935-8225. You can also find out information about KITS on their website by clicking here.

Fern Ridge School District now has a Family Resource Center! Located at Veneta Elementary School, the Family Resource Center will provide services to all families in the district with a focus on families with children birth to five years old. As it gets going, the center will feature information for families on community resources, parent education workshops, and activities for small children. The goal for the center is to help build literacy skills in small children and help families make the transition to kindergarten. The Family Resource Center is made possible by a grant from Lane Kids.
Our Family Resource Coordinator is Angi Trent. Angi has been on the job for a short time but she already has big plans for the Family Resource Center. She already has planned a play date on March 9th at 1:00. It will feature sensory play with shaving cream and a visit from a local police officer.
For more information on the Fern Ridge Family Resource Center contact Angi at 541-935-8225 ext. 418.
