Kindergarten Registration for 2016 - 2017 

2​016 - 2017 Spring Registration 
Spring registration for 2016-2017 School year will begin on April 4th. All students who are currently enrolled in District #27 will receive registration packets for next year. Please complete those and return them to school as soon as possible. Look at the current information carefully and make any necessary changes. These forms are due back by April 15, 2016. There will be an enrollment period in August but in order to get your child on the class list and guarantee a spot at your home school, you should register now. Payment can be made at a later date. 
PARCC Testing 
Common Core Standards 
Spring Escape 
Students in 3rd, 4th and 5th grade will begin taking the PARCC tests on April 11th. We will be testing through the end of April. Each student will take three tests in English Language Arts and four tests in Math. These tests will help measure the student's mastery of Common Core Learning Standards. All tests are on the computer. Students will not test each day. The tests are spread out and scheduled so they don't miss their specialist activities. Please help them do their best by making sure they get a good night's sleep,have breakfast and encourage them to do their best! Free breakfast is served at school every morning.
