Bethel Kinders Off To A Smart Start

Irving teacher Briony Mcfarland engages with Kindergartners as part of the Smart Start small group introduction to school.

Bethel’s youngest students are getting a smooth transition to school.

Smart Start is Bethel’s program to provide Kindergartners an organized and strategic introduction to school.

Half of this year’s kinders come the first day of school, and half attend the second day. Thursday and Friday are reserved for parent-teacher meetings.

This provides an opportunity for students to work in smaller groups as they learn to navigate new routines, new expectations, new friends and their new school.

By meeting with parents and guardians, teachers can begin assessing each child’s academic and Kindergarten readiness skills.

Kindergarten Smart Start is a thoughtful and welcoming way for students to begin a successful school career in Bethel.
