Peters Township School District Kindergarten Registration

Kindergarten Registration for 2017-2018

Kindergarten registration for the new school year is fast approaching!

Each spring we are excited to see our newest group of students getting ready to start their education in the Peters Township School District. Children must be five years old on or before September 1 to enter kindergarten in our schools. Below is a list of steps for parents to take to register your child:

How to Register Your Child for Kindergarten:

  1. DOCUMENTS NEEDED: The first step to registering your child is to gather the necessary documents needed for proof of residency, health records, etc. Links to a checklist of these documents may be found on the Kindergarten website.
  2. COMPLETE THE FORM: Complete the online registration form with information about your child and your family. This online registration is new this year and the link to start that process will be available on March 1, 2017. This part of the process should be completed prior to attending the Registration Session at the school.
  3. ATTEND A SESSION: Attend one of the Registration Sessions at the school that your child will attend. Dates are below and an attendance map of the District can help you determine what school your child will attend.

We encourage all parents to visit the Kindergarten website for the necessary forms and information for Registration.
