Kindergarten Registration




            Punxsutawney Area Elementary School will be hosting a Kindergarten Registration Fair. The Fair will be held in the gymnasium of the Punxsutawney Elementary School on May 8.

            In order to be registered, a child must be 5 years old before June 1, 2019.  Parents of next year’s Kindergarten students are asked to go to the Punxsutawney Elementary School Office, located at 465 Beyer Avenue, to acquire a registration packet.  These packets will be available April 15 to May 6.  After receiving the packet, parents may then call the Elementary Guidance Office at 938-5151 ext. 2138 between the hours of 9 A.M. and 3 P.M. to make an appointment to register their child.   Packets and registration appointments will not be available before April 15th.   If parents are not able to pick up a packet, a family representative may do so. All children will be registered in the gymnasium at the Punxsutawney Elementary School during the Kindergarten Registration Fair.

            The packets contain valuable information about Kindergarten and all the necessary forms which should be completed prior to the child’s registration appointment.  Parents, accompanied by their child, will bring the completed forms, an original birth certificate, immunization record and parental proof of residency to the registration appointment in the gymnasium of the Punxsutawney Elementary School.
