We are pleased to welcome our incoming kindergarteners - the class of 2029!
Whether this is your first or last child attending kindergarten, this year will be a milestone for your family. We are confident you will find that Kenowa Hills Public Schools is an outstanding learning community that takes tremendous pride in our students, parents, and the responsibilities we have as educators in preparing the youth for the future.
Kindergarten Round-Up and K-Knights Round-Up is August 24 from 4-7. Please call the school to set-up an appointment. If you already attended Round-Up, you do not have to attend again unless you would like your student re-tested.
If your student is already registered remember, Kindergarten and K-Knights Open House is the 1st day of school from 8:35-9:30. Please meet your child on the playground (if they took the bus) or bring your child to the playground. After 9:30, join us in the cafeteria for coffee & donuts and maybe some cheers and tears with other parents as you send your 5-year old off to school!

What is K-Knights?
K-Knights (also known as Young 5s) is a tuition-free program designed to teach skills that students need to start kindergarten and is open (but not limited) to children whose 5th birthday falls between June and September 1st. It may also be a good fit for those children who have no preschool experience. Your child will experience a fun, creative, encouraging, child-centered environment while learning to work both independently and collaboratively. Kindergarten skills and behavior are emphasized while students are given the support they need to find success at their level of learning and development. To see if this program would be a good fit for your child, please attend one of the orientations above at your home school.
Schools of Choice
If you reside outside of the Kenowa Hills boundaries, you are welcome to attend orientation at one of our elementary schools. This does not guarantee your child a Schools of Choice spot in kindergarten. The Schools of Choice window will open April 11 and close on May 13. More details about Schools of Choice can be found here.
Children must be 5 years old on or before September 1, 2016 to enroll in kindergarten or K-Knights. The K-Knights program is for students who are not quite ready for kindergarten but meet the age requirement. K-Knights attend all-day everyday Monday through Friday.
