Get Ready for Kindergarten 2023-24

School Information Smiling, happy clipart kids with the words "Register now: Before school offices close in June" and "Join us this summer"

Now is the time to enroll in kindergarten for kids who will be five years old by September 1. We encourage families to complete registration by June 1, before offices close for the summer.

In addition to allowing your child time to become familiar with their school and teacher, registering before the break gives our staff time to prepare the classroom for your child and gives us the opportunity to invite your student(s) to various activities that happen throughout the summer, such as our Early Kindergarten Transition (EKT) program.
