Our annual round up will take place on Wednesday, April 15th at 8:30 am in the school cafeteria. Parents are encouraged to bring their child to the event as they will go to classrooms and participate in an art activity with our current students while parents meet with school officials to learn about registration and school policies. You are invited to attend the meeting if you have been accepted as a tuition pre-kindergarten student; accepted as a magnet transfer student; or live in the Harvard attendance zone and will be attending kindergarten for the 2015-16 school year.
