Spread the word - we are now enrolling for next school year! Encourage any family that you know of in the neighborhood to begin the registration process. More information can be found on the school website by visiting here.


Pre-Kindergarten

The process for notification of Pre-K acceptance has begun by CPS - if you have not yet received an email, double check your Spam or contact Sally in the main office. All families who applied have been notified of being accepted or wait-listed.

Next Years Kindergarten Class Play Dates

Play Dates are parent organized and a great way for you and your child to get to know other students and families before the school year begins.

2019-2020 Classroom Placements

If you are interested in finding out your child's teacher for the 2019-2020 school year, you will need to be signed up for Aspen. Please reach out to your child's teacher or Sally Suarez in the main office ebelizario@cps.edu to find out how to sign up or if you are having difficulty accessing the Aspen System. Classroom placements will be made available by August 23rd, but please note that there are changes made to classroom placements even up through the first week of school. You may see your child assigned to a teacher as early as July, but note that these placements are not always accurate. While we try to have as final of a roster as possible, last minute changes are often needed to be made and sometimes unavoidable - the best laid plans often go awry.


Pre-K and Kindergarten Families will be notified by mail of their class placements the week of August 19th.

Save the Date!

Back to School Information

August 23rd - Classroom Placements updated in Aspen (all placements are tentative - some changes may need to be made the first week of school)

August 29th - Back to School Festival - Meet the teacher/drop off supplies from 3:00 - 4:00pm, PSO Picnic from 4:00 - 6:00pm

August 29th - New Family Orientation, 3:00pm (If Kindergarten families missed the May 31st session, this is an opportunity to have a condensed version, and new families to grades other than Kindergarten are welcome to attend)
