7. Kindergarten Registration
Attention Parents of Incoming Kindergarten Students: Kindergarten registration for the 2023-2024 school year is right around the corner with Online Registration (OLR) launching on March 27th. In the meantime, parents are asked to complete the following:1. Complete and submit this CAPTURE FORM so that we can keep you apprised of information regarding kindergarten registration and orientation. Please confirm that your child meets the age requirement as outlined on the form.

2. Once completed you will immediately receive receipt confirmation with a link to sign up for our in-person kindergarten orientation. Kindergarten orientation provides parents and their rising K student(s) an opportunity to visit the classroom, meet the teachers and connect with other parents and children. If you have any questions, you are welcome to reach out to our school registrar, Mrs. Sarah Kerchner by email sarah_J_Kerhner@mcpsmd.org or phone 240-740-0240.
We look forward to welcoming your kindergarten student!
