Calling all incoming Kindergartners! Registration for children who will be 5 years old on or before October 1st, 2014 will be held in the Main Office of River Plaza School on March 3rd - 7th between the hours of 9:30-11:30am and 1-2:30pm. The following documents are required at time of registration:
1.Original birth certificate (we will make a copy of the raised seal document)
2. Immunization record
3. Proof of a physical exam that was conducted after July 1, 2013
4. 4 proofs of residency such as mortgage statement, car insurance, pay stub, driver's license, etc.
In addition, a two-session voluntary orientation program is scheduled for March 27th and May 29th from 9:30-10:30am. An informational meeting for the parents/guardians and a classroom experience for the children is scheduled for March 27th. Kindergarten teachers and PFA volunteers engage the children in classroom activities, while parents/guardians remain in the APR. There the parents/guardians meet with school personnel including our Principal, Mrs. Pickus, Nurse Casey, our Reading Specialist and Counselor to become familiar with school routines, expectations and a curriculum overview. On May 29th the children take a brief bus ride around the immediate area (without the parent). All children must be accompanied by a parent/guardian to the orientation sessions . For insurance and safety reasons, younger siblings cannot attend these sessions.
In August, you will be notified of an additional kindergarten orientation session that will be held a few days before classes begin in September. At that time, parents will be able to meet their child's teacher and visit the classroom as well as have any last minute questions/concerns addressed. Students will also be given a tour of the school by their teacher.
