Seeking Parent Input on English Language Arts Curriculum
There is nothing more important to a child's lifelong success than a strong foundation in reading. To ensure all students gain these critical skills, a team of teachers and administrators has been reviewing the district's elementary English Language Arts curriculum. They have found some shortcomings and have recommended the district adopt a new curriculum for K-3. Parents, teachers and staff will have the chance to provide input on some of the new curriculum materials the team is evaluating during an April 7 Open House. The open house is from 6 pm to 8 pm at the district office, 690 John Adams Parkway. Questions? Send them to us.

Register Now For Kindergarten
Kindergarten registration begins Wednesday, March 4. The district has seen record numbers of kindergarteners in recent years so parents are encouraged to register their child early, which should increase the odds of the child being able to attend their neighborhood school. Not sure what school you're zoned to attend? See D91 School Boundaries map.
Registration packets should be completed and returned to the school families are zoned to attend. Parents also should bring a copy of the child's official birth certificate, current immunization records and address verification. State law requires children to be 5 years old on or before Sept. 1 to register for kindergarten. Questions? Send them to us.
