We are very excited to welcome your child to join us at the Consolidated School
as they begin their educational journey!
Our Kindergarten enrollment process will begin with a Parent/Guardian Information Evening that is scheduled for March 9th at 6:30 pm. We will then hold our Mini K sessions on March 22nd, April 5th, and April 12th, these sessions will be by appointment only.
Parent/Guardian Information Evening:
This evening is intended to provide parents/guardians with information about our kindergarten program, transportation, school safety and registration paperwork. You will meet administrators and teachers who will discuss what a typical day in the life of a kindergarten student looks like. You will also get the opportunity to take a peek into the classrooms and have teachers answer any questions you may have. During that evening you will also have the opportunity to sign your child up for one of the hour long Mini K sessions that will take place over three days. This evening is intended for adults only.
Mini K Sessions
Our Mini K sessions will take place over three days (3/22, 4/5, 4/12) with three, one hour time slots per day. It is an opportunity for our staff to meet with your child and to get a sense of their literacy and numeracy skills, as well as their current social development in an informal classroom setting. Parents will have an opportunity to meet with the school nurse to review medical forms while your child participates in center based activities. There will also be office staff available to help with any questions with regard to registration paperwork.
To attend kindergarten in the 2023-24 school year, your child must be 5 years of age on or before January 1, 2024.
