2021 Registration Information Below

April 1st kicks off Kindergarten Registration for 2021!

STEP 1: GET READY

Children start learning as soon they are born. That makes you your child’s first and most important teacher, a role you will play all of their life. Every day, there are teachable moments you can use to prepare your child to be ready for school. Help them:

  • Read and look at books every day
  • Stick to a regular bedtime and wake-up time
  • Practice counting real objects — like cereal or crayons
  • Talk about their feelings and what kindergarten will be like
  • Meet and play with other children their age
  • Show respect and use good manners 
  • Find and name letters of the alphabet everywhere you go
  • Visit and explore libraries, parks, and museums
  • Use scissors to practice cutting and crayons to draw
     
Remember: on time, all day, every day!

Starting in kindergarten, a lot of missed days can cause your child to fall behind. Send your child to school every day, unless they are sick. Attending school on a regular basis makes your child feel better about school and themselves. Setting this habit early helps your child do well in school.

Children who are 5 years old by September 30 can start kindergarten this fall. But first, they need to be registered. To register your child, you need to have the documents listed below. The links below provide more information and forms you’ll need to complete.

What do I need to have?
What if I don’t have all the forms I need?
It’s okay. Call the school with questions about missing forms.

Even if your child attends public preschool, you still need to register them for kindergarten.
