Mentone Elementary School will hold kindergarten round up at 6 p.m. March 4. Children that are five years old on or before Aug. 1, are eligible to attend kindergarten. Parents are requested to bring their child’s birth certificate and immunization records with them.
Families will start the evening with a pizza meal served in the cafeteria. There will also be a drawing that evening for five backpacks filled with kindergarten supplies. After the dinner, a parent meeting will be held regarding the requirements for children attending kindergarten during the 2013-2014 school year.
Parents will learn about kindergarten readiness and receive a kindergarten packet filled with information and paperwork that needs to be turned in before their student begins the school year. Child care will be provided for the meeting.
Those who are unable to attend March 4 may still visit Mentone Elementary during the day March 5 through March 8 to sign their child up. Office hours to sign up will be from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. However, if those times do not work either, please contact the school at (574) 353-7465 prior to registration in August to register.
