Kindergarten Registration Activities

Kindergarten students will need to attend the Round-Up Registration appointment with you. While you are completing the registration process, we will briefly assess each child’s Kindergarten initial skills and provide you with the results. Additionally, you will receive information on the Kindergarten Program and have a chance to meet the Kindergarten Staff for Longfellow.
