• Welcome to Marysville!Lion Wave


    Dear Kindergarten Students and Families,

    We are looking forward to seeing you soon! Below we’ve outlined a list of important dates and items. Please note that there have been some changes to the Kindergarten Ramp Up Dates.

    First Day of School (September 5th, 2023)

    The first day of school for all kindergarten students will be on Tuesday, September 5th. The school day starts at 8:40 a.m. and ends at 3:00 p.m. You can go to the PPS calendar to find additional dates for the school year.

    Family Conversations (August 29th or August 30th)

    Teachers will be scheduling individual family conversations by video chat, phone, or in person. You may sign up for a time slot at this link once you have found out your child's teacher. Some questions to consider in preparation for this meeting:

    • What are your hopes and dreams for your child this year?
    • What do you most want me to know and understand about your child?
    • What questions can I answer that will help your family feel ready for Kindergarten?

    Sign up Genius link for scheduling conversations.

    Ramp Up Days (August 31st and September 1st)

    Prior to the first day of school, your student will have a chance to come in for one full-day “warm up” on either Thursday, August 31 or Friday, September 1. 

    • If your student's last name begins with A - L they are scheduled to attend Thursday, August 31st from 8:40 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

    • If your student's last name begins with M - Z they are scheduled to attend Friday, September 1st from 8:40 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

    Students meet at the front entrance of the building.

    Supply List

    We have compiled a list of supplies that would be helpful for your student. Supplies will be individual next year in order to reduce the risk of spreading germs. These supplies are suggestions and not mandatory.

    Office Hours

    Beginning August 15th, our school secretary, Maya Novakoski, will be available Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 3:45 p.m., to answer questions by phone (503-916-6363) or email (mnovakoski@pps.net). You can also contact them to schedule an in-person appointment.

    Before and After Care

    The YMCA will be offering before and after school care onsite at Marysville. For more information, visit the YMCA website or contact Christina Coronado, ychildcare@ymcacw.org, 503-327-0007.


    We look forward to seeing you at the family connect event!
