2015-2016 Kindergarten Class
Westerville City Schools are preparing to begin the registration process for the 2015-16 kindergarten class. We look forward to meeting our new families and greeting our returning families. Kindergarten is required for children before entering first grade. If your child will be five years old on or before September 30, 2015, you may register him/her for kindergarten.
Kindergarten Registration for the 2015-2016 school year will begin in March. A calendar of events includes:
Kindergarten 101 is a presentation by principals, Kindergarten teachers, nurses, and representatives from the district’s Enrollment Center. The purpose of the presentation is to inform parents of the process for enrolling their child for Kindergarten, educating parents on the typical Kindergarten day and what is expected of our Kindergarteners throughout the school year, and to answer questions parents may have about the Kindergarten experience. Parents will have the opportunity to pick-up informational materials, as well as schedule an appointment for registration.
Kindergarten 101 will be held on Tuesday, March 10, 2015, 7:00 p.m., at both Fouse and Hawthorne Elementary Schools with the same presentation being made concurrently at both sites. Free childcare for children two years old and older will be provided on-site by the Westerville Parent Council. A Somali interpreter will be present at Hawthorne and a Spanish interpreter will be available at Fouse. Please call 797-5934 to inquire about American Sign Language needs.
The Kindergarten 101 presentation will be posted following the 2015 event.
Kindergarten informational materials will be made available at Kindergarten 101, as well as in the elementary buildings, the Early Learning Center and the Enrollment and Family Resource Center. While the information is important, it is not necessary to have prior to beginning the enrollment process.

Kindergarten Gentle Start and Kindergarten First Day of School
In August, parents will receive a letter from their child’s school with an assigned date and time that their Kindergarten child is to report to school for Gentle Start. Gentle Start will take place during August 12-14. Kindergarteners will attend school on one of those three days.
ALL Kindergarteners, however, will report to school on August 17.
