Kindergarten sign-ups happening all across Southern AZ - Tucson News Now

Kindergarten sign-ups happening all across Southern AZ

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

It is one of the most important decisions to make, choosing a school for your child. 

Kindergarten sign-ups are happening now at most school districts across Southern Arizona. 

For some parents signing their children up for school for the very first time can be nerve wracking.  School districts such as including Tucson Unified are trying to make the transition a little easier by hosting a kindergarten open house week.

TUSD elementary schools are hosting meet and greets with teachers, giving parents and children the chance to meet potential kindergarten teachers and even check out the classrooms.  Several other districts, like Vail and Sunnyside Unified are having kinder roundups during March.  Amphitheater School District has an ongoing registration, and Flowing Wells School District officials have said their kindergarten registration is coming up later this month.

Parents are reminded that when they sign up their children, they will need a birth certificate, immunization records and proof of residency.

Many TUSD kindergarten teachers will be at the Tucson Festival of Books this weekend, in case parents are not able to get to the schools during the week.
