2015-2016 Morningside School Suggested Supply List
Please see the attached school supply lists for a printable, by grade list of what is needed!
Starting fall of 2015, Salem-Keizer Public Schools will offer free full-day kindergarten.
Previously, full-day kindergarten was offered as a tuition-based program at a few schools, and half-day kindergarten was available for free. The district will no longer offer half-day programs, but many private kindergarten providers will still offer half-day. Children are not required to attend kindergarten, however it is highly recommended.
Students who turn five on or before September 10, 2015 are eligible to register.
opens February 17, 2015.
Parents are asked to register students right away so the district knows how many students will be attending in order to prepare an adequate number of classrooms, supplies, etc.
Early registration will help parents stay in the loop of upcoming school events like kindergarten orientation, which will take place in May.
How to register
To register, please visit the school and pick up a registration packet. If you’re unsure what school is assigned to serve your residence address, please visit the district’s school finder page: www.salemkeizer.org/content/boundary-information
Parents must complete and sign the forms in the registration packet (registration form, home language survey, immunization form) and provide:
1. Proof of residence address. Examples of documents accepted include a copy of a utility bill, driver’s license with current address, copy of rental agreement, etc.
2. Original birth certificate for the child. The school will make a copy and return the original to the parent.
Help your student get ready
Parents can help students get ready for kindergarten by helping them:
· Hold a pencil, crayons and scissors correctly
· Practice writing his/her name
· Learn the ABC’s and how to count to twenty
· Name and identify basic shapes, such as square, triangle and circle
· Learn how to take turns and share with others
Please contact Morningside with questions about registering for kindergarten.
