Kindergarten and PreK Info Nights scheduled

Kindergarten Registration and Information Night for the 2019-2020 school year will be held on Thursday, March 21, from 4 to 6:30 p.m., in the Steelville Elementary multipurpose room. Those who have a child who will be five years old on or before July 31, 2019 may register the child at this time. Please bring the following items:  official birth certificate, immunization record, and proof of residency (for example, a utility bill, a mortgage or rental agreement – the documentation must show the name and physical address).

During the registration process, several elementary departments will be available to provide information about the school, including details on bus routes, food service, nursing/ health, and special education. 

After your child is registered, you will be assigned a time to bring the child to kindergarten screening, which will be on Friday, April 12. It is not necessary to bring the child to registration on March 21. If your child is age-eligible for kindergarten, then they are required to attend screening to help make educational decisions and to begin planning for the foundation of the child’s learning.

If you are not able to attend kindergarten registration, school staff asks that you stop in to the elementary school office anytime school is in session and register your child before Wednesday, May 1, so that plans for kindergarten for next year can be finalized. You will also need to set up a time for screening.

Preschool Eligibility

Information on how a child could be eligible for Steelville’s Pre-K program will be discussed at Pre-K Information Night on Tuesday, April 2 at 5 p.m. at the Early Childhood Center.  

The child must be four years old by July 31, and not kindergarten-age-eligible, in order to potentially be enrolled in preschool. Steelville’s Pre-K program only has 40 spots available, and student eligibility is based on a screening. Those who attend the information night will be assigned a screening time on Thursday, April 4.  

Steelville Elementary Principal Candice Richter is hopeful that the information, registration, and screening processes are an informative and welcoming experience. She encourages parents or caregivers to make every effort to attend as this is an important first step in the school’s preparation for each new student’s education.
