We need your help getting students registered for Kindergarten next
year. Right now, we only have 42 students (that doesn't include
students coming from our preschool classes) signed up for Kindergarten
screenings so far this year. We will have one final Kindergarten
registration day before the mandatory screenings. Parents/guardians
can stop by Northwest Elementary School during the school day from
9:30 am - 3:00 pm and 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm on MAY 8th. If parents cannot
attend registration, they must make an appointment with the NES
Guidance Counselor, Mrs. Shannon, ASAP. (Call 259-2250 ext. 3318).
Please spread the word anyway you can! Tell people in the community,
at your church, at ballgames, at school functions, post it on your
Facebook or Twitter account! A flyer is even attached, so you can
print off and distribute or post in a high traffic area if you would
like. You can even copy and paste the following to your page if
you so choose:
