Kindergarten Round-Up

  • Join us for Kindergarten Round-Up! Both of Westonka's award-winning primary schools are offering virtual and in-person orientation activities for incoming kindergarten families in January. Visit the school websites for virtual tours, videos, presentations and registration information.

    Shirley Hills Primary School

    Kindergarten families are invited to take a 5-minute self-guided tour of Shirley Hills on Tuesday, January 12, between 4:00 and 8:00 p.m. Use the Sign-Up Genius link below to select your starting time. Staff and teachers will be on hand to answer questions as you walk through your tour of Shirley Hills as a family.

    Hilltop Primary School

    Please join Hilltop Principal Mike Moch, along with our teachers and staff, for a guided tour of Hilltop Primary School on Thursday, January 14. You and your child can choose one of the small group tour sessions by registering via the Sign-Up Genius link below. Due to the nature of COVID-19, we ask that all families limit the number participating to one guardian and the future Kindergarten student.

Westonka Kindergarten

  • Kindergarten students

    The kindergarten program offered at both Hilltop and Shirley Hills primary schools is all-day, every day kindergarten. Full day kindergarten is a state funded program and is free for all students.

    We design instruction for a full day, and no separate half-day program is offered. Our staff is experienced in helping young children adjust to a full day of learning; however, if you are concerned that a full day of school may not be appropriate for your child, please contact your school principal:

    Michael Moch, Principal
    Hilltop Primary School
    (952) 491-8500

    Scott Eidsness, Principal
    Shirley Hills Primary School
    (952) 491-8400

    Adventure Club, the district's school-age care program, offers optional supervised care before and/or after school. Hot lunch is available every day.


Parent Testimonial

  • SH Kindergarten Family

    “We could not be happier with our choice to enroll our kids in the Westonka School District. Westonka checked off all of our boxes: small class size, amazing educators, kind staff and challenging curriculum. The teachers genuinely care and are simply outstanding."

    —Catherine & Jeff Ottenbreit, parents of Augustus, class of 2031
