Kindergarten registration for the 2017-18 school year will be held on Thursday, May 25th and Friday May 26th. If your child will be 5 on September 30, 2017 they are eligible for Kindergarten. Registration packets are available now at the Elementary building. Please come in or call 740-858-1116 for a registration packet. Registration will go much quicker if you complete the papers and return them as soon as possible. You can drop them off at the main office at the elementary and we will have them ready for you at sign-in on registration day. 

The packet also contains a "Student Health Examination Form" which can be used by your child's doctor for the Kindergarten physical. FYI: We will need a completed 2017 physical form, signed by your doctor, before your child can begin Kindergarten. However, you can register them on registration days. 

Registration Dates: Thursday, May 25th, 12 - 6 p.m: Friday, May 26th, 9 a.m. - 2 p.m.

Please bring the items listed below with you to registration. Personnel will be available to make copies for you.

*Birth Certificate (a registered copy - not the hospital certificate)

*Child's Social Security Card

*Your identification

*Proof of Residency (driver's license, Ohio ID, mail)

*Custody/Court papers in applicable

*Insurance card

*Immunization Record (everyone new to Kindergarten must have their record - even our Preschool students)

If you do not have some of the items above, please come to registration anyway. We can work on getting them over the summer. If you have any questions, please feel free to call us at 740-858-1116.

"I found a penny today

Just laying on the ground.

But it's not just a penny

This little coin I've found."

 From "Pennies from Heaven", By Charles Mashburn

This week begins our "Pennies for Patients" campaign in support of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's annual fundraiser. Each year over 14.5 million students and 850,000 educators in 28,000 schools across the US participate in the event. The LLS provides much needed funding towards research, looking for a cure for blood cancer diseases. The organization also supports patients and families with medical bills and other related expenses. 

"The LLS Student Series is a service learning, character education and philanthropy program where students gain the unique experience of helping children and adults fight against blood cancers like leukemia. As children move through their years at school, they can grow with the Student Series and have an even greater impact on the lives of patients. By participating, not only will kids learn about making an impact, but about leadership, teamwork, philanthropy and what 'doing good' for others can mean." For more about the LLS Student Series go to: Pennies for Patients Student Series
