Lakewood schools present 'Kindergarten Round-Up' Feb. 11

LAKEWOOD — The Lakewood School District is inviting all parents whose children will be 5 years old by Aug. 31 of this year to attend the district's "Kindergarten Round-Up" Feb. 11.

The Lakewood Middle School commons will serve as the site for this event from 1-6 p.m., so that parents can register their kids for kindergarten, in addition to getting them health screenings from the district nurse and developmental pre-screenings from district special education specialists.

The district is asking parents to bring their children's immunization records and original birth certificates, as well as proof of residency and two emergency contact names and phone numbers. Parents are welcome to pick up kindergarten registration packets in advance at the Cougar Creek, English Crossing and Lakewood elementary schools, so that they might complete those forms prior to the registration event itself.

The tuition-based kindergarten program is available on a first-come, first-served basis, and those who wish to register their children for this program will be required to pay a $100 deposit at the time of registration. The ongoing cost per month is $250, for a total annual amount of $2,500.

For more information, call the Lakewood School District office at 360-652-4500.
