Kindergarten registration for the 2014-2015 school year will be held on Thursday, March 13th from 4:00-6:00 at Whittier. In order to start kindergarten in August of 2014, by state law, your child needs to be five years old on or before September 1, 2014. Please bring your child's state certified birth certificate (copy of hospital certificate is not accepted), and immunization records for your child.
We will have some activities for your child to participate in. To cut down on the amount of time that it will take you to fill out registration materials, you may want to pick up the packet after March 6th, fill out the forms, and bring them back completed on March 13th. You will have the opportunity to register your child for our traditional kindergarten class or our dual language kindergarten class at this time. If you need more information concerning kindergarten registration or the dual language program please contact the office at (208) 854-6630.
Dual Language Enrollment is now open to those who are interested. You can pick up enrollment forms in the main office, or you can download them online at www.boiseschools.org. Follow the link to special programs/dual language. For those people who are outside of the Whittier attendance area, you will also need to fill out open enrollment paperwork. You can turn this in any time after March 6th. Kindergarten registration is March 13th. Priority will be given to those families that have their enrollment paperwork turned in before April 1st. If necessary, we will have a lottery on April 3rd. Those who enroll after the April 1st date will be placed at the end of the lottery list, or enrolled on a first come basis. For more information please contact the office.
DUAL LANGUAGE INFO MEETING
Whittier will be hosting an informational meeting for those parents who are interested in learning more about our dual language program. This will be beneficial for the parents of incoming kindergarten students, and those wishing to enroll their students in the program. Please note that we do not enroll students in the program after first semester of their first grade year.
