School Registration Process
- To register your child in school you will need to bring all the following documents:
- A certified copy of the student's birth record
- A copy of resident's lease, utility bill, or home ownership deed as proof of address
- Immunization record and Tuberculosis screening
- Student records from the previous school if the student is transferring schools
You may also have to take your child in for a physical exam by a licensed physician within 12 months of entering school.
Your child can not be turned away from a school on the basis of race, disability, citizenship, national origin, religion, English language speaking ability, or family background.
- Read a book with your child everyday and point out letters, numbers, pictures, colors, shapes, etc. Let your child handle the book, too

- Count. Count. Count! Count everything you see
- Point out and read numbers on billboards, houses, signs, in stores, and picture books
- Introduce very simple arithmetic (e.g., if we buy two apples and you eat one, how many do we have left?)
