Kindergarten Online Registration is OPEN!
If you are a family of a rising kindergarten student or know of a family who will be sending a child to kindergarten during the 2020-21 school year, it’s time to start thinking about kindergarten registration.
Great news! We’ve got an opportunity to save some time on April 16, which is Kindergarten Registration Day at every elementary school in Chesterfield County.
Visit https://mychesterfieldschools.com/family-and-community-engagement/preparing-for-school/student-registration/kindergarten-registration/ and preregister for kindergarten today. Doing so should cut in half any wait time on Kindergarten Registration Day.
Please remember to share this message with any family you know who has a rising kindergarten student!

Grange Hall Families,
Thank you to PTA and our GHES community for showering our teachers and staff with love on Thursday by providing all things chocolate! We appreciated all of the delicious treats. Our fourth grade students enjoyed an author visit with Steven K. Smith on Friday. Thank you to Mrs. Schneeberger for organizing this event. This week we will celebrate Random Acts of Kindness week. How many Random Acts of Kindness can your family complete this week?

A keynote presentation and breakout sessions will be the format. Dr. David Elena will deliver the keynote based on his experiences as a school principal, administrator, teacher and father and share insights and information into the ever-changing adolescent mind. Doors will open at 6:00 p.m. to provide attendees time to visit resource and vendor tables and the program will begin at 6:30 p.m. with a keynote presentation, followed by a choice of two breakout sessions. Breakout sessions are designed for families entering sixth grade and current middle school students; recognizing the social, emotional, and physical changes in students; fostering responsible technology habits and Internet safety; and tips on heading to high school, including information on leveling, and specialty centers.
