Welcome Central Kindergarteners!
Posted on 04/23/2024

Dear Parents,

I would like to express my thanks to all those who participated in the kindergarten registration process. It was a pleasure to meet you and your child, and we look forward to getting to know your child better.

All kindergarten students enrolled for Fall 2024 will be in AM Academic Kindergarten (8:35am-11:55am). For those of you who registered for KEEP39, this enrichment program will take place in the PM for your child (11:55am-3:15pm Monday-Thursday and Friday 11:55am-2:15pm). If you did not register for KEEP39 and would like to now, please let the secretaries in the office know as soon as possible. 

You may want to mark your calendars now regarding these important kindergarten dates:

  • Please join us at 5:30 pm Tuesday, May 7th for Kindergarten Orientation. The evening is intended for parents only and will take place in the Central auditorium.

  • The PTA is organizing an event called "Popsicles on the Playground" for all incoming kindergarten students. The event will take place on Thursday, May 30th from 3:30-4:30 pm at the kindergarten playground on 9th Street.

  • You will receive an email from District 39 this spring about paying your school fees online before the first day of school. (If you have any questions or need any assistance, please contact our school office).

  • New student information regarding transportation, school fees, health forms, and fee waiver guidelines can be found on our district website at www.wilmette39.org

  • School Supply Kits may be ordered this spring from the PTA - click here to learn more.

  • Complete the Parent Intake Form prior to June 1st.

  • You will receive an email in mid-August with the name of your child’s teacher.

  • August 21st is our first day of school. For the first week of school, kindergarteners follow a special modified schedule to enable the teachers and students to get to know each other. Details about the week will be emailed to you in mid-August and posted on our website.

  • Please visit our Central Kindergarten website frequently for more back-to-school information.

Central School is a very special place, and I am looking forward to an amazing 2024-25 school year. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to me.
