  • Glacier Hills Elementary, School of Arts and Science Kindergarten!

    Welcome to Kindergarten at Glacier Hills Elementary, School of Arts and Science!  We are so excited to have your child at our wonderful school.  Our Kindergarten day is a busy one.  

    Kindergarten encourages the growth of problem solving, decision making and communication skills, supports cooperative learning, socialization, healthy self-esteem and creativity. Growth occurs as children actively participate in concrete, hands-on activities each day.

    Play is an important part of the kindergarten program. There are strong links between creative play and language development, physical, cognitive and social skills.

    Our curriculum follows state standards and district frameworks and standards. As skills and concepts are taught, there will be more emphasis placed in the areas of science and art.
