Kindergarten Registration

NEWTON —If your child will be five years old by September 30, 2014 and you are a resident of Newton, he or she is eligible for kindergarten in September of 2014. Registration materials will are available at the Memorial School office and can be picked up any school day between 9:00 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Please bring your child’s original birth certificate when registering your child.

New Hampshire State Law requires all children to have had immunizations for DPT, Polio, Mumps, Measles, German Measles, Chicken Pox, and Hepatitis B prior to entry to school. They also require each child to have a complete medical examination within one year prior to entry into kindergarten. A form to be completed by your physician will be with the registration materials. They recommend scheduling your child’s physical exam as soon as possible. Students may not enter kindergarten without these completed forms. Please plan to complete the registration process by June 13, so that your child may be assigned to a classroom.

An orientation and information night for parents of incoming kindergarten students will take place on Thurs., April 3, at 6:30 p.m. at Memorial School. School personnel, the principal, assistant principal, school nurse, guidance counselor and kindergarten teachers, will be available at the orientation to answer questions.

All incoming kindergarten students will participate in a screening process. Student screenings will take place Thurs., April 10 and Fri., April 11.

Newton residents should call Memorial School at 382-5251 to schedule a screening appointment.

  •  Successful Conservation Collaboration

    On June 17, the sophomore class of Sanborn Regional High School made a field trip to the Old Frye Town Forest, one of Kingston's five town forests, to assist the Kingston Conservation Commission in the removal of invasive plants from the area near the trailhead, notably, an extensive and aggressive patch of Japanese knotweed. This project was the culmination of the school's third year of intra-curricular collaboration with the Commission to address local environmental issues, and to make conservation an area of study and research. Congratulations from the Commission to the teachers and students for a job well done!
