Upcoming Events



    Kindergarten Registration 

    Kindergarten registration has begun for the 2017-2018 school year (for children who will turn 5 years of age on or before August 31, 2017).  While you may register later, earlier is better, because the sooner we know how many children are coming, the better we can prepare.  Click here for a list of needed documents to bring when registering your child.  After January 5th, the office staff is happy to help you register from 9:30-2:30, Monday through Thursday :)

  • ALL Call:  1/05/2017

    Hello, this is a special message from Mrs. Short at Ballentine Elementary.  We wanted to ask our families to check their house, neighborhood and community to see if we have any future fireflies who need to be registered for kindergarten in 2017-18.  Kindergarten registration starts today for any kids who will be 5 on or before August 31st.  Early registration helps us plan better for next year, so please help us by coming on in soon to sign up for kindergarten.  We look forward to meeting our future fireflies! 

    >> Also, I wanted to remind our families that, if you ever miss an all call, the scripts from all calls are posted on the bottom right side of our website.  Just go to Stay warm & have a great day!!
