Kindergarten registrations


Kindergarten and pre-kindergarten registration continues Thursday and Friday for the New Castle school district.

Registrations are being taken at the Harry W. Lockley Early Learning Center, 900 E. Main St. between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

To register for pre-kindergarten, a child must be 4 years old by Sept. 1. To register for kindergarten, the child must be 5 years old by Sept. 1.

Parents are to take their child for registration. Developmental screenings will be administered to determine the child’s readiness for pre-kindergarten and kindergarten.

The following information will be needed to enroll a child: birth certificate, immunization record and proof of residency. That includes a mortgage, lease or current utility statement. A driver’s license cannot be used as proof of residence.

If a child attends pre-kindergarten at Croton school, he or she does not need to register for kindergarten. The records will be transferred automatically to kindergarten.

More information is available by calling (724) 656-4735 for kindergarten and (724) 656-4815 for pre-kindergarten.


Kindergarten screening has been set for May 19 and 20 for the Mohawk school district.

To be enrolled in the district’s kindergarten, a child must be turning 5 years old on or before Sept. 1.

Parents must contact the school to pick up an enrollment packet. The forms in the packet must be filled out completely and returned to the school in order to schedule the child’s screening.

More information is available by calling (724) 667-7782, extension 1100, between 8:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. weekdays.

Have you held or will you hold a garage/yard sale this year?

I have and it was a success! It's a great way to get rid of some junk and make a little extra pocket money.
I have, but it didn't go over so well. Better luck next time?
I haven't yet, but I plan to.
I haven't and I don't plan to. It's not for me.
