The Lima City Schools Jump Start to Kindergarten district-wide registration event will be held from 9 to 11 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 8, at Liberty Arts Magnet School, 338 W. Kibby St.
Children who will be age 5 by Aug. 1 can enroll in kindergarten this year. Registration is at Liberty regardless of which school a child will enroll in. Open enrollment is accepted.
This year’s event will feature snacks, games and prizes, including several chances to win bikes, backpacks full of school supplies and more.
The day allows parents to register their children, get questions about kindergarten, campus wear and transportation answered, and learn about kindergarten readiness and various community organizations and services available to families.
Children can also get physicals while registering. Children must have a physical before entering kindergarten. The Spartan Health Center will also be available to schedule appointments for immunizations.
Parents should bring to registration their child’s Social Security card, immunization records, original copy of birth certificate, current physical, Medicaid or insurance card, proof of residency and custody papers (if applicable).
