REMINDER: 4K, Kindergarten Registration Day is Wednesday


DELAVAN — Parents and young students wishing to be a part of something amazing should keep their calendars open on Wednesday, April 16, 2014.

That’s when the Delavan-Darien School District is holding is preschool and kindergarten registration. Child Development Day is also occurring April 16 (see details below).

Parents in the district can register their children — who are not already Delavan-Darien students — between 7:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m., or between 3:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 16, at Phoenix Middle School (414 Beloit St., Delavan). During this time, parents will complete paperwork and children present will participate in a kindergarten readiness screening.

“A new school year brings the excitement of learning, growth and change to children, and adults alike,” said Pupil Services Director Sara Halberg. “Teachers, principals and all of us who support learning are committed to do all that we can to make the upcoming school year a successful one for your child.”

Delavan-Darien schools have been experiencing much change and success over the last several years. The district now has new reading and math curricula for all three elementary schools and Phoenix Middle School, a one-to-one technology program for all students (the only such district-wide program in the county) and a new dual-language immersion program starting in the 2014-15 school year (also the only school district in the county with such a program). The district was also just recognized by the National Association of Music Merchants as one of the best in the country for music education.
