classrooms and meet the Kindergarten teachers.

Elementary Gymnasium. All registration materials are available in the
document list to the right. If you are able, please print and complete

will be available for those families who need them. In addition, please
bring a copy of your child's birth certificate with you to the meeting. You may contact the Elementary Office with
questions at 336-2822, extension 4010.
In addition, information will be given about the free exam dates in
April. All children entering Kindergarten must have a physical exam, dental
exam, eye exam, and meet the Iowa immunization requirements for elementary
school. Several of the exams are provided as a service by the area
doctors free of charge or at a reduced rate on the scheduled day.
Orientation Day will be held Thursday, March 3 at which time students will be
given assessments and go through a typical Kindergarten day experience.
