TIPPECANOE CO., Ind. (WLFI) -- Families with incoming kindergartners will have the chance to get a head start on school with Kindergarten Roundup.
All 11 Tippecanoe School Corporation elementary schools will host their Kindergarten roundups on Wednesday.
Kids and families will get the chance to sign up early, tour the schools and meet teachers.
It also gives the school corporation a chance to get an idea of the incoming class size.
Burnett Creek Elementary Kindergarten teacher, Kelly Stockton, said Roundup helps kids get ready for school life.
"It helps really ease some anxiety for some of those kids that are a little bit nervous and it's just exciting for those that have older siblings here, they count down the days," said Stockton.
There are ways you can prepare your child for school even if you can't attend Kindergarten Roundup. Stockton says you can help get your child ready by talking about letters, sounds and socializing.
"If your child has not had any preschool experience we just encourage you to get them some play-dates set up with other kids, have some socialization with their peers," said Stockton.
The elementary schools will have their roundups at various times Wednesday.
