Cardinal Jump Start

Kindergarten Cardinal "JUMP START"


Giving your child the "Gift of Time"
While attending Staples-Motley Elementary School

Staples-Motley school district, recognizing that some students are just not ready for the full-day Kindergarten experience, provides a program called Cardinal Jump Start.  Students who are at least five years old by September 30th of that school year, can attend a developmentally appropriate full-day program, staffed by a certified teacher.

Students participating in Jump Start for one school year are then eligible to move directly to first grade.  However, the majority of Jump Starters opt to attend regular Kindergarten with new academic and school readiness skills under their belt and a year of extra maturity behind them.

Cardinal Jump Start is offered, free of charge, at Staples-Motley Elementary School.  For more information, contact us at 218-894-2433.
