Kindergarten Registration for 2018-2019

It is that time of year! If you have a child who will be 5 before July 31st, then they are eligible for the 2018-2019 school year! All students entering kindergarten for the first time will need to provide a valid birth certificate, complete record of immunization, have a kindergarten physical, dental and vision exam. Kindergarten registration booklets will go out in the mail in February. Questions? Call the Prescott Office-402-436-1161

Kindergarten registration for the 2018-2019 school year is scheduled for:

Wednesday, March 7th, from 8:00 AM-6:00 PM
Thursday, March 8th from 8:00 AM-4:30 PM

Register your child at the school that he or she will attend next year.  Families who wish to enroll their child in a school outside of their attendance area must complete a Special Attendance Permit that is available at all schools.

On Thursday, May 3rd, next year’s kindergarten students will be invited to visit a kindergarten classroom from 6:30-7:30 pm.  This orientation is an opportunity for your child to see what a classroom looks like, and to observe some of the fun things that take place every day in school.   Please understand that the classroom your child is assigned to visit does not indicate who your child’s teacher will be in the fall.

Storybook Character Parade March 2

In honor of Read Across America Day and Dr. Seuss’ Birthday, Prescott will again be having a book character parade.  The parade will be on Friday, March 2, at 3:00 pm.   Kindergarten through fifth grade students are invited to choose a favorite book character and dress up like him or her and join the parade through our hallways.  We will wear regular clothes to school and then put on our costumes in the library at 2:45 pm.  We would like students to carry their character’s book during the parade.  If you choose a book from home, please send it with your child.  If it is a book our library owns, we will have it ready for your student.

If you are interested in having your child in the parade, please fill out the form that was in the Friday folder and return it to Ms. Ebeler by Friday, February 23.  Participation is optional.  Students who choose not to dress up will be part of the audience.  We also need adult volunteers to help students get ready.  If you have questions please contact Ms. Ebeler at debeler@lps.org.

Note:  We want to focus on favorite book characters. Please begin with a book and be creative in designing a costume to fit the book character, rather than using a popular costume that does not represent a book.  Thanks!
