Kindergarten Enrollment is Nearing

We are beginning to gather names of children that will be entering Kindergarten for the 2019-2020 school year. If you have a child that will be starting Kindergarten with us in August, please email Sherri Poarch at spoarch@hoover.k12.al.us with the child's first and last name, a parent's name, email and phone number so that we can include you on our list! We will be emailing enrollment packets to families shortly after spring break. Our Kindergarten enrollment date is April 25 from 4-6.


If you know anyone in the community that has a student that will be enrolling with us in August, please share this information with them. Thank you!
