Kindergarten Roundup scheduled for Eureka Springs

Thursday, April 4, 2019

Next year’s kindergarten students and their families can take a first look at their new schools this May.

Eureka Springs Elementary School will hold Kindergarten Round-Up from 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, May 1. Parents are asked to bring the following if available: birth certificate, Social Security card, immunization record and proof of residency.

“Teachers will be here to meet the students,” said elementary principal Clare Lesieur, “and families get to visit the kindergarten classrooms and talk about grade level expectations. It’s designed to make them all feel more comfortable.”

She said children are encouraged to attend with their parents.

Lesieur said Eureka Springs will also have Pre-K Enrollment from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. this Thursday, April 4, at the elementary school.

“In addition to the other documents, for Pre-K we also need them to bring proof of income,” she said, “because it is on a sliding scale.”

For more information on kindergarten or Pre-K registration, she said parents can call the elementary at 479-253-8704.

“We’re really looking forward to meeting our incoming students and their families,” Lesieur said.
