Kindergarten Round Up

It’s hard to believe, but SWE is already gearing up for the 2017 – 2018 school year. We will be holding our annual Kindergarten Round Up on April 27th from 5:00 – 6:00pm in the Media Center. Parents will be able to register their student for Kindergarten, meet the Kindergarten teachers, and receive information about Southwest Elementary and academic expectations. If you plan to register your child during Kindergarten Round Up you will need to bring two proofs of residence (voter ID card, electric bill, utility bill, government benefits letter, car insurance, or any other document with your name, current date, and address), child’s birth certificate, parent photo ID, shot record, and completed physical within the last year. Also, please feel free to bring future Kindergartners with you. They will be able to meet the teachers, participate in story time, and create a craft. If you have any questions, please contact the front office at 863-499-2830. We hope to see you there!!!
