Transition into Kindergarten for preschoolers and families

Odyssey holds an annual Transition to Kindergarten Open House for any preschooler and their family to attend. During this night families are able to learn more about how to prepare their child for Kindergarten, visit a Kindergarten classroom, and have their questions answered about the Kindergarten transition and Odyssey Charter School.

Transitioning to Kindergarten Open House – February 8, 2022 – 6:00 pm
If you missed the meeting, we have many resources available right here:

Transition into High School for 8th graders and families

Because Odyssey feeds into all 3 county high schools, but is not part of the county system we have some unique transitional challenges. In our first meeting we address course selection including a representative from the Central Education Center (CEC), and graduation planning. In our May meeting we address registration paperwork with our registrar and high school transitional challenges with our alumni panel. On this page we also include flyers for the high school transitional nights which occur between January and February.
