K and Pre-K Registration


K and Pre-K Registration

Dear Hartford Families,

The Hartford School District is in the process of obtaining information for incoming pre-kindergarten and kindergarten students for the 2014-2015 school year.  Early enrollment is important because it gives the schools time to plan for the incoming classes, allocate resources to fit the student needs, and best prepare for your child’s education. If you have a child who will be 4 or 5 years old on or before August 31, 2014, please complete the registration form and return it to your local elementary school (Dothan Brook, Ottauquechee, or White River) to start the registration process.  Your local school will contact you in early spring to set up an appointment for screening/orientation.

To prepare your child for their school experience, here are a few tips that you may want to try.

  • Read with your child as much as possible.  While reading ask questions like what do you think the story is about, what will happen next, why do you think the character did that.

  • Point out and read words on street signs to your child.

  • Give your child a piggy bank, count the coins frequently, and introduce the coins’ names.

  • Whenever there is an opportunity, count objects with your child.

  • If your child is having strong emotions, help them to recognize and name their feelings.

Also, if you have a friend or neighbor with a child in this age range, please have him/her call one of the elementary school.

Thank you for your assistance and please feel free to contact the school with any questions.

Sincerely yours,

Rick Dustin-Eichler
