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.

Scratch is a visual programming language and online community targeted primarily at children. Using Scratch, users create their own interactive stories, games and animations, then share and discuss their creations with one another.

Do you love to play and create with Scratch? Sign up to attend the first LPS Scratch Day Event! Come to participate in fun Scratch activities with your friends. Students grades 3-8 can choose from four workshops or an exploration room with hand-on activities. Workshop #1 runs from 10:00 am-11:00 am and workshop #2 runs from 11:00 am-12:00 pm.

This event is free — but there are limited seats. Sign up today! Students must be accompanied by a Parent/Guardian. Parents do not need a ticket — just the student(s) that are participating. Parents, please plan to stay with your child for both workshops.

Lost and Found

We have a Lost and Found table located at the bottom of the stairs by the cafeteria. When an item is lost, we put it on the table for the students to see when they are at breakfast or lunch. Please take a moment and check out our lost and found area by the cafeteria. Any items left at Prescott on December 22, 2018 will be donated.

School Supplies

What school supplies do I need?

All students should have a backpack along with a lunch box, if needed, marked with their name.

According to Nebraska state law and LPS Policy, students are never required to bring any supplies to school. All supplies necessary for your child’s education will be supplied by LPS.

Some families have asked if they can help by donating supplies. Sometimes having extra supplies on hand is helpful especially when new students arrive, when markers go dry or items get misplaced. Teachers may have a special optional project planned that may require other resources, like notebooks, extra colored pencils or fabric.

IF YOU CHOOSE, you can certainly donate to a grade level ‘supply closet’ that will benefit everyone on the team. Later in the year there may be a time when a grade level sends out another grade level ‘supply closet request’ for a special classroom project.

If you are interested, you can also donate to area school supply drives. Please verify the organization collecting the supplies to ensure the donations are give to the students and schools that need the supplies the most.

Thank you so much for your willingness to help us launch our grade level supply closets. Thank you for being such an incredible group of parents!
