Easter Egg Hunt at the Nursing Home


1st Grade

It is again the time of year when we Pre-Register for the next school year here at PCK-8. Therefore we would like to pass along pre-registration dates and rules for Kindergarten and 7th Grade. Please be aware that there are new immunization rules for both Kindergarten and 7th grade that must be followed for a list of those guidelines you may click here.


We will be registering upcoming Kindergarten students

May 19th, 20th, and 23rd , 2011. Registration dates are set up according to the first letter of the child’s last name.

May 19th…………..A-H

May 20th …………..I-Q

May 23rd ………….R-Z


Registration will be from 8:15 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. each of the three days.

You should bring the following with you to register:


2. Child’s original birth certificate (child has to be 5 years old by September 30th, 2011).

3. Child’s immunization record and proof of medical exam for entrance into school. **Note there are new immunization requirements for Kindergarten

4. Child’s social security number/card.

5. Custody papers, if appropriate.


***While at school your child will undergo a screening test, a speech/language screening, a vision screening, and a hearing screening. Plan for this process to take at least 45 minutes to complete. *Parents, please note that at times during the screening process you will be asked not to accompany your child, you will be allowed to remain nearby, but not with the child. Please help prepare your child for this, so he/she will not be afraid.

All parents/children should come to the K-8 office when arriving at school. If you have any questions or need further directions concerning pre-registration, please call 864-6565.
