It’s Kindergarten Rodeo Time!

Getting ready for the first day of Kindergarten is an exciting time for both students and families.

To help families prepare for Kindergarten and to allow the District to plan for the upcoming school year, all elementary schools host an annual Kindergarten Rodeo for incoming Kindergarten students. Kindergarten Rodeo will be held on April 16th at each elementary school.

To be eligible for Kindergarten in the Gardner Edgerton School District, children must be 5 years old on or before Aug. 31. Entering kindergarten requires a state-issued birth certificate, an official record of ALL required immunizations (list of immunizations can be found here), and a physical.

Below are the District elementary schools and phone numbers.  Please call your child’s school to make a reservation for your child to attend Kindergarten Rodeo.  Even if your child cannot attend on April 16th, please call the school so they can get the needed enrollment information to you.   If you are not sure of the school your child will be attending, please visit the “School Locator” Link.
