Getting Ready for Kindergarten - March 2014

    If you have a child turning five years of age on or before December 1, you have probably received a call from the Grand Island Central School District asking you to register your child. If you have not received this call and have a child eligible for kindergarten, please call the District Office at 773-8800 so that your child can be registered. Sending your child to kindergarten is a big step, but an exciting time in your lives. Once your child is registered, the clock begins to tick and there are several dates which become important to you.
   April 9, 2014 - Getting Ready for Kindergarten Night
   This is an evening designed with parents in mind. Teachers from Sidway School will share helpful information about coming to school. The hour long presentation will begin at 6:30 pm. This is especially helpful if you have questions about what you can do at home to help your child feel prepared for coming to school.
