Kindergarten Registration at Greenville City Schools

Submitted by Jody Harter, Principal at Greenville Elementary School

It is that time of the year to register your child for kindergarten! Greenville City Schools will be holding kindergarten registration at the Elementary School Tuesday, April 2nd ( 4:00- 7:00 P.M.), Wednesday, April 3rd (4:00 – 6:00 P.M.), and Thursday, April 4th (4:00 - 6:00 P.M.), or you can register your child at Memorial Hall, Monday through Friday from 8:30-3:30. You can also register your child on-line at Registering your child is so very important so we can plan for the most successful school year. Your child does not need to be present for registration. Your child must be 5 years old by August 1st to be eligible for kindergarten.

Once you have registered your child, you will be assigned a kindergarten screening date. At screening, your child will be given a short academic, speech and health screening and parents will be provided with helpful information about kindergarten at Greenville City Schools. Screening is a great opportunity for parents to have any questions answered and for students and parents to visit the school. Kindergarten screening will be held the week of May 6th.

Screening is vital for families to get information about how kindergarten has changed over the years and learn about our district and a typical day in kindergarten. We will also gain information about your child that will help us place them in the perfect kindergarten classroom.
Students will have the opportunity to get on a school bus and learn about bus safety. They will also receive a pencil, magnetic dry erase board and marker, magnetic letters, crayons, scissors, a book about manners at school, and a Wee Wave drawstring bag to keep everything tidy. Parents will learn how to use these materials with the students to provide the best start to school curriculum.

Please register your child early so that they can be included in the screening process. This will help us with providing an exceptional school experience for you and your child.

Documents needed to complete the registration include: official birth certificate, immunization records, two documents for proof of residency (something with a mailing address included,) parent or guardian photo ID, and custody papers if applicable.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call Mrs. Harter, Elementary Principal, at 548-3185.
