GSCS 2018-19 Pre-K registration and parent meeting upcoming

STAFF REPORT :::

Parents or guardians of prospective Griffin-Spalding County School System (GSCS) Pre-Kindergarten students are invited to attend a parent meeting at 6 p.m. Tuesday, March 13, in the Griffin Auditorium located at 233 E. Taylor St.

During the information session, families will learn about the Pre-K program, the registration process and will receive the complete registration packet.

Georgia’s Pre-K Program is a state lottery funded educational program for all age eligible four-year-old children in Georgia, with the goal of preparing children for success in kindergarten and later school years.

The GSCS Pre-K program operates on the regular school system calendar for the length of a typical school day.

The 2018-19 Pre-K registration is open from March 29 through April 6 at the Parent Service Center located at 234 E. Taylor St. Registration hours are from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
To be eligible for this year’s Pre-K program, students must be four-years-old on or before Sept. 1, 2018.

After March 13, Pre-K registration documents will be posted on the GSCS website at http://www.spalding.k12.ga.us. Parents or guardians must complete the Pre-K online registration either prior to or at the time of registration at http://tinyurl.com/gscsregsitration.

“Attending this meeting is very beneficial for Pre-K parents or guardians because they will get the registration packet early allowing them time to complete the paperwork, gather required documents and make necessary appointments prior to the registration window opening,” said GSCS Pre-K Coordinator Dr. Chris Bearden.

GSCS has a total of 21 Pre-K classes holding a maximum of 22 students per class.
All GSCS elementary schools have at least one Pre-K class.

For students to be included in the lottery drawing, the online registration and all required documents included in the Pre-K registration packet must be completed and turned in during the registration period. Packets turned in after April 6 will be placed on a waiting list.

“This is an exciting time for parents as their students begin their educational journey. The GSCS Pre-K staff looks forward to meeting with you on March 13and answering any questions regarding the GSCS Pre-K program,” added Bearden.
