Kindergarten RoundUpElementary schools across the district are gearing up for Kindergarten Round Up events the first week in May as we continue kindergarten registration for the 2016-2017 school year. Here are some tips on how you can prepare your child for kindergarten and help them develop a love of learning.
State law requires children to be 5 years old on or before Sept. 1 to register for kindergarten. Registration packets should be completed and returned to the school families are zoned to attend. Parents also should bring proof of residency, a copy of the child's official birth certificate and current immunization records. Not sure what school you're zoned to?

graduationSeniors across the district are preparing for graduation. Commencement exercises for Compass Academy and Emerson Alternative High School will be held at 7 pm on Tuesday, May 31. Graduation exercises for Idaho Falls and Skyline high schools will be held on June 1 and June 2 respectively.  

Idaho Falls seniors will receive four tickets for commencement exercises in the Civic Auditorium. Parents can request additional tickets in writing through the school secretary. Extra seating in the auditorium is not guaranteed. Skyline seniors will receive six admission tickets. Additional tickets can be requested by filling out a form and submitting it to the office by May 20. Additional tickets will be districted at the June 2 practice. Questions? Send them to us.

Possible Redesign of high schoolsWe are beginning to investigate a possible redesign of Idaho Falls and Skyline high schools. Teams of teachers from both IFHS and Skyline are working with Hummel Architects to develop conceptual designs. We have a committee of parents, patrons and community/business leaders that will provide input on those ideas. A May Open House is planned that will give parents and patrons a chance to see the conceptual designs. The designs will be presented to the Board of Trustees in May, and then in July they will review preliminary costs and concepts. After that, they will decide how to move forward. That could include pursuing the idea of a redesign or looking at other options. Learn More  Questions? Send them to us

KidsBikesStudents across the district are taking part in a Bike Challenge this month. Children are being encouraged to ride their bicycles to and from school for 12 days between May 2-20. Students who can't safely ride to school can still participate by bicycling around their neighborhoods for 15 minutes per ride. Those who successfully complete the challenge will receive t-shirts and be entered in a drawing for a free bike. The Bike Challenge is part of ongoing efforts to encourage children to be active and healthy. Questions? Send them to us.
