Kindergarten Registration is March 13, 2014
If you have a child beginning kindergarten this August, parents should mark their calendars for Thursday, March 13, 2014. Registration will be held at each elementary school from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 4-7 p.m.
Kindergarten for the 2014-2015 school year will be all day every day. This decision was made with our children’s best interest in mind. After years of discussion and parental requests we decided that it is time to change from the alternate day program. Our students will benefit from a more consistent schedule and will have time to learn and practice the more rigorous curricular expectations. Everyday half day will also be an option if parents choose to transport their child midday.
In order to register, a child must be 5 years old by September 30, 2014 and the following items are needed at the time of registration: personal identification with a picture I.D., proof of residency, the child’s original birth certificate or passport, child’s complete immunization records and certified custody papers (if applicable).
Registration forms are available online, at registration, or may be picked up at the school office. Bringing completed forms to registration will expedite the process. The principals, secretaries and nurses will be on hand to verify the necessary paperwork and address any concerns parents have.
This year our school reading theme is “Under the Sea with Literacy.” We will focus on author’s purpose and see that reading can not only inform us but also is a great tool to entertain us and sometimes can persuade our way of thinking. Reading opens our minds so that we can understand new points of view and learn about new ideas and places we never could have imagined. Every student is asked to become part of our Reading Club! All you have to do is get into the habit of reading each night and record your minutes on a monthly calendar. Students who complete the required reading will earn a variety of incentives throughout the year. Students who participate each month of the year will celebrate by coming to a special Beach Party on May 9. Don’t be left out to sea, be sure to read each month.
To help Sharon Elementary be the best school on the planet requires everyone to respect each other. We need to all create a beautiful school by cleaning up after ourselves, completing our work so that we are proud of our efforts and treating each and every person the way we want to be treated. Kindness and polite behavior in our words and actions will make for a wonderful year! Below is an acrostic poem to remind you about making this school year one that is out of this world!
