Description:
Marion Community Schools invites families of children who will be starting kindergarten next school year to come visit their elementary schools and get a head start on the registration process at Kindergarten Roundup, set for Thursday, April 19.

Families can attend one of two sessions set that day, at 1 p.m. or 6 p.m.

Children who will be 5 years old on or before Aug. 1, 2017, can attend kindergarten in the 2018-19 school year.

The informational sessions will be offered at every MCS elementary school:

• Allen Elementary School, 1115 E. Bradford St., 664-7355
• Frances Slocum Elementary School, 2909 S. Torrence St., 664-0589
• Kendall Elementary School, 2009 W. Kem Road, 662-7364
• Riverview Elementary School, 513 W. Buckingham Drive, 662-2427

We hope to see all families of incoming kindergartners at this event that is just for them! It's a great way to help your future kindergartner get an introduction to the school building and staff. It's a low-pressure, informative session that's meant to specifically meet the needs of families with incoming kindergartners and their families.

What you need to bring: We ask that you bring proof of residence (like a utility bill with your name and address on it) if possible, so we can make sure you're at the right school. We also ask that you bring a copy of your kindergartner-to-be's birth certificate. You'll be beginning the registration process at Kindergarten Roundup, so we need that official document to certify your child is eligible for kindergarten. (If you cannot bring a copy of the birth certificate on this day, we can still begin the registration process, but we'll need you to follow up with us and provide that document before we can complete the registration process.)

For more information, call 765-662-2546, ext. 122, or call the office of your school at the numbers listed above.
