Kindergarten Parent Orientation
During this special event, parents will join Cindy Kapeller, Steele Elementary principal, as well as teacher representatives in the auditorium to learn about what it means to be a kindergartner at Steele Elementary and how to best support their child as she/he transitions to kindergarten.

Kindergarten Round Up
NEW THIS YEAR!- We welcome incoming kindergartners to join us! The girls and boys will spend time with our kindergarten teachers in their classrooms for a variety of activities!

(This event is specifically for families who have received confirmation from our DPS Choice office that their child will be attending kindergarten at Steele Elementary for the 2018-2019 school year.)
