Kindergarten Registration

At the time of registration, the following original documents must be provided:

  1. Proof of birth date for the student (birth certificate or passport) (registration will not be accepted until proof of birth date is received)

  3. Proof of Residency (Property Taxes – current receipt, purchase/rental agreement or rental receipt, City Annual Utility Bill, District Verification of Address by Landlord form, if.none of the above is available)

Non-Catchment Applications – if you would like to request that your child attend a school other than their catchment school, a non-catchment application form should be completed and submitted online or to their catchment area school starting February 4, 2019 at 8:30 a.m.

Applications will be date and time stamped, however, a number of factors are considered when determining whether these applications will be successful or not. Schools will hold non-catchment forms until approved by the Assistant Superintendent. Approvals will be processed as soon as possible, but may be held until the second week of September, therefore, parents should register their child at their catchment area school to ensure a placement. No approval of non-catchment requests may be given at the school level.

Registration form can be found on the District website:


Starting with Stories at Holly

May 6 & May 13

Holly Library  9:00 – 10:00 a.m.

The countdown to Kindergarten has begun. Holly Elementary will be hosting a program called “Starting With Stories” for all children attending Kindergarten in September of 2019. Parents and 2019 Kindergarten students should attend together. Babysitting will be provided for siblings.

The program will focus on important topics to help families’ transition to Kindergarten and promote success. It offers parents an opportunity to learn more about Kindergarten and how to support their children’s academic, social, and physical transition into school. It is also designed to help the children get excited for the transition to Kindergarten and ease their comfort within their future learning environment. The children will enjoy singing, playing with new friends and listening to stories. You will also receive free books to share with your child.

Starting With Stories is designed with guidance from our teachers and the District’s Early Learning Coordinator.

Starting Kindergarten is a milestone. The Kindergarten year is one of the most important years in your child’s school career; it is a time when attitudes toward school and learning are strongly influenced. Building a strong home-school connection is an important foundation for school success. Please consider joining us for Starting With Stories. We are excited to get to know you and your child!
