Enrichment Team Needs New Members

Calling all Rising Kindergarteners!!

It is that time of the year…we are looking for rising kindergarten students!  We count on our registrations to guide us in how many kindergarten classes we will have for the 2018-2019 school year so please come in to register your rising kindergartner early.  Kindergartners for the 2018-19 school year will need to be five years old by September 30, 2018.  This group of kindergartners will be the graduating class of 2031!

If you have a rising kindergartner, I would love to send home a packet with your Gleber, please email me at and I will send one home with your older student.  If you know of children in your neighborhood please encourage them to come by and register.
