Nearly 100 kids and their families attended Kindergarten Express on Thursday evening April 11, 2019.
School staff walked around the high school gym with prospective students and did learning activities and pre- kindergarten screenings.
Parents whose child will be attending South Edmonson or Kyrock Elementary could schedule appointments for physicals, dental screenings and vaccinations needed for Kindergarten.
After each soon-to-be kindergartner visited each table in the gym they were given a token for a free snowball from Pelican's Snoballs.
School counselors, PTO members, school mascots and both Principals Shaun Stice, Kyrock Elementary and Josh Long, South Edmonson Elementary were also at Kindergarten Express.
"Kindergarten readiness is something we are really trying to stress this year," said Kyrock Elementary principal Shaun Stice. "It helps keep kids on track to ensure they are ready for first grade at the end of the year.
Kids that will be taking the bus to and from school next year were able to check out a school bus first hand during Kindergarten Express.
"We are so excited for the fantastic turnout we had at our first district wide kindergarten registration, said Carol Stice, Instructional Supervisor of Edmonson County Schools. "We look forward to making this event bigger and better every year. I also want to thank the Family Resource Center for their help in planning this event."
