Arcanum kindergarten registration slated

ARCANUM – Arcanum Elementary is excited to welcome a new class of kindergarten students during the 2013-2014 school year! Arcanum Elementary Trojans have the opportunity to participate in engaging, full-day learning activities that meet the needs of each child! The kindergarten staff is trained in early childhood instruction and guides their students through social, emotional, and academic development during their first year of school. Arcanum Elementary is enthusiastic to welcome your family and begin the registration and screening process with your child.

Kindergarten registration for all students who turn five before August 1 and plan to attend Arcanum Elementary in 2013-2014 will take place on March 11 and March 14. A parent may register their child between the hours of 9:30 a.m.–3 p.m. on either of those days. They will also have evening hours available for registration on March 11 between 6–8 p.m.

On the day of registration, parents must bring a certified copy of the child’s birth certificate (it must be the original with the raised seal), social security number, custody papers (if applicable), and proof of residency. Parents wishing to open enroll may fill out an open enrollment form for consideration. Parents will complete the registration packets at this time and sign-up for a screening appointment on April 11 or April 12. Please enter the main doors on the day of registration. For screening, park in the north parking lot and enter the north door located by the playground.

One parent must attend the screening session with their child on April 11 or 12. During the screening time, parents will attend a Jumpstart parent orientation session while the child meets with kindergarten teachers and completes the screening process. The results will then be reviewed with families. Screening sessions will be conducted from 8:30-9:30 a.m., 9:30-10:45 a.m., 10:45–noon, 1-2:15 p.m., and 2:15-3:30 p.m. on both screening days. Please allow approximately 90 minutes to complete the process.

If you have any questions, please call the elementary office at 692-5174.
