Kindergarten Registration is Happening Now!

Kindergarten Registration is happening now.

To register your student please go to: The District's New Student Registration Website
Fill out the form
You will need to provide your student's birth certificate, immunization records, and a current bill that is connected to your home (i.e. an electrical bill, gas bill, trash bill, sewer bill, lease agreement, or purchase agreement) to the school.

Once your student is registered and you have provided all of these records for us we will send an invitation for you to sign up for our Kindergarten Meet and Greet.

The Kindergarten Meet and Greet is by invitation only. There will be no open house this year. Please do not wait to register your student we would love to see you at the Meet and Greet.

Feel free to share this with your friends that might have Kindergarten age students that need to be registered.


This month we are focusing on our Learner Power Reflect!

To Reflect: to think about and monitor your own learning.

Young children can reflect how they did while completing a simple chore or how they behaved with a sibling.

Older children can reflect on their quality of time spent on homework, or the level of understanding on a tough concept at school.

Be sure to ask your student about our Learner Powers.
