NEW K- 4th GRADE STUDENT REGISTRATION for 2019-20
Please click the 2019-20 Registration link to begin the registration process.
Once you complete the online portion you will need to provide the school office with the originals of the following documents: your child's birth certificate/passport, immunization records and proof of residency (lease, purchase agreement, tax bill).
Once we have all the necessary documentation we will be able to place your child on a class list.
We encourage a parent/adult to attend a portion of the morning on Monday, Aug. 26th with their new Kindergarten student. Please plan to "meet the bus" at Bennett Woods (or transport your student) and then join them in the classroom as they begin their 1st day of school. Kindergarten teachers will also hold a parent meeting during this visit (Aug. 26th @ 9:00). Additional parking is available in the church parking lot adjacent to Bennett Woods.
