At Kindergarten Round-Up, students and parents will get the chance to meet kindergarten teachers, the principal and many other important people in their 5-year-olds educational lives. A tour of the kindergarten classroom and other parts of the school are planned. Every attending child who is registered for kindergarten will receive a Class of 2026 T-shirt.
By registering children now, parents will establish good communication with their childrens school and help their children be successful on their first day. Parents should bring their childrens birth certificates and immunization records. If help is needed in obtaining either of those documents, staff will be available.
