The Fillmore Central Elementary School in Preston will have its annual Kindergarten Round-up information meeting for parents and visitation for students on Thursday, March 18th, at 6:30 p.m. in the elementary media center. Please use the elementary entrance.

Fillmore Central Schools is All Day Everyday Kindergarten.

Parents whose children will be attending kindergarten during the 2010-11 school year are asked to attend along with their children. Information about the kindergarten program will be shared and a general question and answer time provided.

Either bring a copy or the original and we will make a copy of the following information:

1) Legal birth certificate;

2) Immunization record for DTP, Polio, MMR, Hepatitis B, etc;

3) Evidence of completion of Early Childhood screening (if your child was screened by the Fillmore Central District, we will have your child's records on file.)

To register for kindergarten your child must be five years old by September 1, 2010, and the above information is required by law for registering your child for kindergarten.

During the classroom visits you will be exploring the room with different activities. We will also offer supervision for your other children on Thursday evening if you are in need of it. Please contact Brenda Ristau with the number of children during the Thursday evening meeting so we can plan for the number of supervisors needed.

If you have any questions or concerns, or are unable to attend the round-up, please call the elementary school office at 765-3809 or 886-2787.

Registration packets have been mailed to families. If you have a child in the Fillmore Central School District and did not receive a packet, please call the elementary school.
