Registration for students entering Preschool and Kindergarten for the 2017/2018 school year is getting underway.

Kindergarten:

Country Elementary and Farley Hill Elementary are offering a 5-day, all-day kindergarten program for the 2017/18 school year.

Children must be 5 years old on or before September 1st to enroll in kindergarten for the 2017/18 school year.  Parents wishing to enroll students who turn 5 after September 1st through December 1st may submit a written request to the school district to enroll their student for the 2017/2018 School Year.   The State of Michigan prohibits public schools from enrolling in Kindergarten students turning 5 after December 1st. 

KinderREADY:

Pinckney Community Schools is also offering a 5-day full day KinderREADY program at Farley Hill Elementary and Country Elementary for the 2017/2018 school year. KinderREADY is a program especially designed for young school-age children (children turning age 5 by September 1, 2017) who are needing a little more time. All children develop at their own rate socially, emotionally, and intellectually. It is normal. KinderREADY is designed to provide more readiness activities for reading, writing, and mathematics getting students acclimated to a school environment, used to following directions, and sharing with other children. Children are screened individually to determine if KinderREADY is the right fit for the child. For more information on the KinderREADY program, please contact Farley Hill Elementary at (810) 225-6400 or Country Elementary at (810) 225-6600.  For more information on the 2017/18 KinderReady program, please click here.
