The date has been set for Tuesday, April 9. All children who will be five years of age by Aug. 1 in the El Dorado R-II School District are invited to join in the fun. Children must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. As in years past, the event will be divided into two time slots. If your last name begins with a letter between A-M you are encouraged to attend the first group which is 5:30-6:30 p.m.; if your last name begins with a N-Z you will be in the second group at 6:45-7:45 p.m. This will eliminate an overwhelming crowd at an important event for our incoming Kindergarten children.
The children will get to visit their new school, meet their teachers and ride the school bus. Parents will be able to schedule a time for Kindergarten Screening and register their child for the summer school program. The Kindergarten summer school is a wonderful opportunity for lots of fun and helps ease the transition for children and their parents.
Be watching the mail for your invitation and your time to join us. You will receive an enrollment form to complete. A list of things you will need…
1. State issue birth certificate (The one issued from the hospital will not work).
2. Your child’s social security card.
3. Immunization records.
4. Completed enclosed enrollment form.
Please bring these items to the El Dorado Springs R-II Elementary Office prior to Kindergarten Roundup between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. We will make copies of these items. This will help to make the lines shorter on the night of Kindergarten Roundup. If you are unable to make these times, you may bring them with you on the night of Kindergarten Roundup. Please reserve this time for your upcoming kindergartener. For questions, please call Joyce Dawson 876-3112 Ext. 272. Hope to see you there.
