It’s time to get new kindergarteners attending Fargo Public Schools registered for the start of the 2014-15 school year, which begins August 27.
Do you remember circle time, “fat” crayons, washable markers, desk assignments, buying a backpack, coat hooks all in a row, and learning to count to 100? It’s almost time for another group of students to experience those same childhood — specifically Kindergarten — memories.
All families who anticipate sending a child to Kindergarten within the Fargo Public School District for the 2014-15 school year are encouraged to register their child during the Kindergarten Registration Event, February 24 – 28, Monday through Friday between 7:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. daily. The child must be age five by July 31, 2014. Early registration will assist the District in planning adequate staffing and classroom materials for the school year.
Parents/guardians are asked to register at the Fargo Public Elementary School where their child will attend. Not all Fargo addresses fall within the Fargo School District boundaries; some residential areas are assigned to the West Fargo School District. If a parent/guardian does not know which school their child will attend, call 701.446.1043 or check online at www.fargo.k12.nd.us/boundarymaps.
When registering their child, parents/guardians are asked to bring:
- The child’s certified birth certificate
- The child’s current immunization record
- Document (i.e. City of Fargo utility bill, lease agreement, etc.) that includes parent/guardian name and address to verify the correct neighborhood school.
