The final step to prepare your child for kindergarten requires completing annual registration in late July via PowerSchool. Keep an eye on district communications for registration information and instructions. Online registration is required every year and includes verification of student information and electronic signatures on financial forms and CPCSC policies.

Just before school begins, you and your kindergartener will be invited to take a practice ride on the school bus to and from the bus stop and school. Each school will also hold Kindergarten Kick Off! and an open house to meet your teacher and take a tour.
