The first day of the district track meet was great! The weather was beautiful and the meet went very smoothly. We have already had several athletes (both boys and girls) qualify for regionals. The finals start today at 5:30. I encourage everyone to come out and support the Bulldogs. Admission is free and the Booster Club will be providing a concession stand with food and drinks.
On another note, we had our annual kindergarten and pre-k round-up this week. The round-up gives parents a chance to pre-register students for kindergarten and pre-k classes. It also gives the district and idea of how many students to prepare for in the fall. Below are the results of this year’s round-up:
Kindergarten: 9 students registered + 2 others we know for sure are coming = 11 students (63 currently in 4 year old programs – Total for next year would be 74 students at this time)
3 year olds: 17 qualified for this class that takes no more than 17 – FULL with waiting list
4 year olds- Head Start: 14 new students + 17 from our 3 year old program = Total HS 4 year olds: 32 students (each class allowed 20 students max – so one class is full)
4 year olds – Pre-K – 15 students qualified, 3 more interested in tuition ( 22 students allowed in this class)
OVERALL – somewhat better numbers than last year’s Round Up
