Transitional Kindergarten (TK)

Please also visit the school district's website for more information regarding Transitional Kindergarten.

Marvin Elementary's kindergarten program features "Transitional Kindergarten" classrooms. These classes are composed of children who turn five September 2nd - December 2nd.

Our Transitional Kindergarten (TK) classes use the same curriculum and standards as our kindergarten classes. What makes this program different is that the children are neither expected, nor required to be proficient in all kindergarten areas. The TK students are exposed to the kindergarten curriculum, but the main focus of their lessons are the behaviors and skills required to master the curriculum, rather than the curriculum itself. The TK students are learning how to be students.

Generally speaking, the children in the TK class are younger. These are students who begin the year as four year olds, although some of the students are of kindergarten age. 

Marvin's Transitional Kindergarten program has proven to be enormously successful. The year that these students spent in the TK program taught them how to be strong, successful students.
