All four Bullhead City Elementary School District grade schools will be enrolling and registering new kindergarten students on March 30 for the fall semester. The annual Kindergarten Round-Up is for new students who will turn five years old by August 31 of this year.
Kindergarten Round-Up will be held at Coyote Canyon, Desert Valley, Diamondback and Sunrise Elementary Schools from 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm.
“This is an opportunity for parents to start the school registration process early and not have to wait until the last minute,” said Superintendent Riley Frei. “It’s also a chance for parents to find out what a child should know before starting Kindergarten.”
New kindergarten students who are registered during Kindergarten Round-Up are also eligible for free summer school in June. In addition to classroom instruction, the June summer school session helps transition children to a school environment, whether they have had pre-Kindergarten classes or are new to public schools.
Parents should bring their children who will be attending kindergarten. Additionally, a birth certificate, immunization record and proof of residency, such as a driver’s license or utility bill, are necessary.
Some Kindergarten Round-Up topics include a child knowing his or her name, numbers, the alphabet, writing, drawing, colors, sight word recognition, routines and the ability to tell time. Information will also be available for parents whose Kindergarten students may have special needs.
The fall semester for the 2017-2018 Bullhead City Elementary school year starts July 31 following a two month summer break.
Additional information about Kindergarten Round-Up is available at each of the four Bullhead City elementary schools, or at the District office, 928-758-3961.
