Sunrise River School will host a kindergarten registration and information night April 16, 5:30 to 7 p.m. If you are looking for a kindergarten program, come and see what we have to offer, talk to our teachers and staff, and see our wonderful building.

Starting next fall, North Branch Area Public Schools will offer free all-day everyday kindergarten. For those worried about the length of a full day, we have a half-day option as well. Regardless of which schedule you might prefer for your child, NBAPS offers the most well rounded kindergarten experience in the area.

You can expect your child to have exposure to Spanish, physical education, art and music, along with the critical core instruction they need to start their education on the right foot. Beyond the unique specialist offerings and core instruction, you can also expect a highly personalized education from a staff recognized by the Minnesota Department of Education as achieving “celebration” status for gains in achievement.

We also provide wonderful “Marvelous Mondays” offerings through Community Education, and NBAPS provides high quality affordable childcare Mondays and all days of the week. Please call Community Education at (651) 674-1025 for more information.

If you would like to learn more about kindergarten registration and information night, call (651) 674-1100. If you have questions about our kindergarten and elementary offerings, personalized education or the achievement gains made at Sunrise, call principal Jason Hartmann at (651) 674-1105.
