BULLHEAD CITY – All three Bullhead City Elementary School District grade schools will be enrolling and registering new kindergarten students on June 30 for the fall semester. Due to large group assembly restrictions, the previous annual Kindergarten Round-Up is, for this year, a more formal kindergarten registration, with set times for new students who will turn five years old by August 31 of this year.
Kindergarten registration will be held at Desert Valley, Diamondback and Sunrise Elementary Schools from noon to 6:00 pm in one hour blocks, depending upon a child’s last name.
“This gives parents a chance to start the school registration process early and not have to wait until the last minute,” said Superintendent Carolyn Stewart. “It’s also a chance for parents to find out what a child should know before starting kindergarten.”
Parents should bring their children who will be attending kindergarten. Additionally, a birth certificate, immunization record and proof of residency, such as a driver’s license or utility bill, and parental or guardian ID are necessary, along with any applicable child custody court documents. Incomplete registrations will not be accepted.
Information in Spanish will also be available. (La información en español también estará disponible.)
Registrations at all three sites are: last name A-D, 12:00 p.m.; E-H, 1:00 p.m.; I-L, 2:00 p.m.; M-P, 3:00 p.m.; Q-T, 4:00 p.m.; and, U-Z, 5:00 p.m.
Stewart noted that it is important for each incoming kindergarten student to know his or her name, numbers, the alphabet, writing, drawing, colors, sight word recognition, routines and the ability to tell time. Information will also be available for parents whose kindergarten students may have special needs.
Welcome kits donated each year by the Order of the Eastern Star will also be provided.
The fall semester for the 2020-21 Bullhead City Elementary school year starts July 29.
