Kindergarten enrollment for Wa-Nee elementary students will begin on Wednesday, March 1. Please complete the online enrolment form at the bottom of this page. Information gathered from this form will be distributed to the appropriate school who will send families an email confirmation with details on how to complete the enrollment process. Families with no internet access can contact the school to receive a enrollment form and more details.
Kindergarten Round-Up will be on Tuesday, March 14. Two sessions will be available for parents to choose from. The first session will begin at 9:30 a.m. and the 2nd session will begin at 5:30 p.m. Students are not expected to attend this event as this will be an informational meeting for parents to hear about Kindergarten expectations and ask questions. Parents can also complete the enrollment process if they have not done so beforehand. Once the enrollment process has been completed, families can schedule their child's Kindergarten assessment. We recommend doing this as soon as possible as dates/times for assessments are limited. Teachers will be administering the assessment for our incoming kindergarten students in the spring. These assessments will be administered in a 1-on-1 setting.
