Kinder Round up starts Monday, April 7th. On Wednesday, April 9th, Scobee will have Kinder tours from 7:30 a.m.-3:00 p.m. During this time, Scobee will pre- register Kinders and give tours to the child and parents. They will tour classrooms and school, as well as answer any questions the parents may have. However, sstudents will not be assigned to a class until the summer.
To be eligible for kindergarten in 2014-15, children must be 5 years old on or before Sept. 1, 2014. To pre-register a child in kindergarten, parents must bring: a certified (original) copy of the child's birth certificate, an updated immunization record, and proof of residency (such as the current and prior month’s electric bill, water bill, cable bill, or landline phone bill). A social security card is optional.
Once again, Northside is expecting a large kindergarten enrollment for the upcoming school year, making it all the more critical that parents register their children during Kinder Roundup in order to secure a seat at their neighborhood school. More than 7,500 kindergarten students are expected to enroll for the 2014-15 school year. “No more than 22 students can be assigned to each classroom, and once all the classes in a school are filled, children may be sent to a cluster campus.” said Pat Mesquiti, Instructional Specialist for Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten programs. Transportation will be provided for these children. “By participating in Kinder Roundup, parents can assure a seat for their child when school starts in August, she said. And all their paperwork will be done and ready to go." Visit the NISD School Boundaries Information System, at the boundaries and buses website, to determine your neighborhood school.
