(Thursday, Feb. 12, 2015)
On Friday, April 17, Silver Lake Grade School will hold Kindergarten Round Up. If you know of any child who is currently 5 years old or will be before Sept. 1, 2015, please let the family know of this date.
Parents can sign their child up by calling the grade school office at 582-4081 before April 6. The office will need to know the child's name, date of birth, parents' names, address, and phone number.
On the day of Kindergarten Round Up, parents will need to bring a copy of the child's birth certificate, current shot records, and the information sheet which will be mailed shortly before April 17.
There will be no kindergarten or preschool classes held on April 17 due to Kindergarten Round Up.
