East Washington Elementary will hold kindergarten registration Wednesday, April 20.

A child must be 5 years of age on or before Aug. 1, 2016, to enroll in kindergarten. It is required that parents bring a birth certificate for each child enrolling. Immunization records are required in the fall.

Students who do not reside in our district may still enroll at East Washington.

Registration will be in the EWES gym from 8:30-11:30 a.m. and 12:30-2 p.m. Please allow an hour for registration and testing.

The school nurse will be present to provide information and forms for physical exams and immunization requirements. A short developmental screening, speech screening and vision test will be administered during registration.

Representatives from Head Start, the Parent Teacher Organization (PTO), Women Infants and Children (WIC) will be available to talk with parents as well.

Parents will receive a packet with tips and materials to help their child to succeed in kindergarten.

Parents who are interested in early entrance for kindergarten will need to present a written request to Shari Dalton, Title One director, at the school by May 1. This will allow for the child to be tested in order to determine eligibility. Students must be 5 by August 31, 2016, to be evaluated for early entrance.

If you have any questions, please call Dalton at (812) 967-2929.
