Making the Grade Helps You Get Ready for Pre-K and Kindergarten Roundup
Its never to early to get your child ready for Elementary School.
That's why the WFISD hosts the annual Pre-K and Kindergarten Round Up.
Parents have a whole week to pre-register their kiddos for either of the two early childhood educational programs.
The annual Pre-K and Kindergarten Roundup is just days away and more than a dozen wfisd schools are saddled up and ready.
School officials are urging parents to get there kids signed up early.
Kindergarten and Pre-K teacher Tiffany Hutchinson says,"Kindergarten and Pre-k Round-up is our districts way to make plans to see the number of children we are going to expect to accommodate in the fall".
Parents have one week to enroll students in kindergarten and one week to sign them up for Pre-k.
"Parents will need a birth certificate proof of residence, social security card, and they can come up and meet with the secretary fill out the paper work and that basically just secures them a spot", said Hutchinson.
Parents should also bring an up to date shot record.
"Kindergartners are reading now and they weren't 20 years ago", says Hutchinson
Although the early childhood development programs are not district requirements teachers say they provide the foundation for your child's academic journey.
"We feel like pre-K is all about about teaching them letters and sounds and Kindergarten is really the foundation of teaching kids to read", said Hutchinson.
Kindergarten Round up starts April 29th and runs thru May 2nd.
And Pre-K Round up is may 6th thru May 9th.
On the last day of both events secretaries will stay at each campus until 6pm to help accommodate as many parents as possible.
There are a few additional and specific rules and regulations for Pre-K.
