Here are the dates and time the 5th graders (and their parents) will be in front of the school. See you there!

REGISTER EARLY FOR KINDERGARTEN 

Tell your neighbors and friends to register early for 2019-20 Kindergarten 

If you live in Lake Washington School District (LWSD) and your child will be five years old on or before August 31, 2019, now is the time to register them for Kindergarten! Registration takes place at your neighborhood school during regular school hours through the beginning of the 2019-20 school year. While registration will continue throughout the school year and summer, parents are highly encouraged to register students as soon as possible. Doing so helps ensure class sizes are balanced and adequate staff are hired in time for the new school year. 

 Visit the Kindergarten Information webpage for more information.
