Kinder Roundup

Each spring, Bryker Woods hosts a Kindergarten registration and orientation for incoming Kindergartners and their parents/guardians. While the children visit a Kinder classroom, parents complete necessary paperwork and present copies of their driver’s license, utility bills to verify address, child’s birth certificate, social security card and up-to-date immunization records. The morning concludes with a visit through the cafeteria line for a snack and an optional tour with a parent volunteer. Remember it is quite convenient and helpful to complete the registration online!

Tuesday April 2, 2019 from 9:00 am to 10:30 am in the Bryker Woods Cafeteria
