Valuable Family Resource Links:
If your child is beginning kindergarten in the fall of 2018 at South Lane School District:
We are offering a FREE summer program to get ready for kindergarten! The program will be held at Bohemia Elementary. It’s called the Kids in Transition to School (KITS) Program. The program is designed to provide a boost to children’s literacy, self-regulation, and social skills before kindergarten.
- The school readiness groups are structured like a kindergarten class. Children attend 2 sessions a week during July, 3 sessions a week during August, and 1 session per week in September after school starts.
- Parents attend workshops weekly in the summer and every other week in the fall.
See the downloadable flyer to the right or call SLSD Family Resource Center/Peggy's Primary Connection for more information, 541-942-4967. Space is limited.

New science tells us that our children’s first years are when they develop the foundation for all future learning. Every time we connect with them, it’s not just their eyes that light up—it’s their brains too. In these moments, half a million neurons ﬁre at once, taking in all the things we say and do. We can’t see it happening, but it’s all there, all at work. That’s why Vroom is here. Vroom turns shared moments into brain building moments. Whether it’s mealtime, bath time, or anytime in between, there are always ways to nurture our children's growing minds.
