Kindergarten Registration

Kindergarten registration for the 2021-2022 school year begins Friday, February 5. To enroll, your child must be five years old on or before September 15, 2021.

Online Registration

Beginning Friday, February 5 at 8:00 a.m., parents will be able to enroll their incoming kindergartener via online registration. More detailed information is available on the Enroll/Registration page.

Per Board Policy 501.15, applications will be considered late if they are received after June 1. Late registrations will not be considered until all other placements have been made.

What is Needed for Registration?

Please follow the kindergarten registration checklist, as a guide detailing the required documents. Most of the documents can be uploaded into your online application. However, if you do not have the capability to upload documents or if you need copies made, please submit documents starting February 5 to your neighborhood elementary or the registrar at the district office, 306 SW School St. The required documents are:

  • Home Language Survey
  • Proof of Residency
  • Proof of Child’s Birth Date

Medical documentation will be collected at a later date.

Informational Meeting – Updates to Come

This year, the kindergarten parent informational meeting will be conducted virtually. This meeting will be held on April 22 at 6:30 p.m. More information regarding how to join will be shared at a later date.

Due to increased elementary enrollment and limited space, parents are encouraged to enroll their upcoming kindergartener based on the process set forth by the district.

PARKVIEW GIVING TREE CHALLENGE

The L.E.A.D. Council at Parkview has chosen to do a “Giving Tree Challenge” . They have designed a slide show to tell you all about it! Please click on Parkview Giving Tree challenge to see their presentation. Students are to take their donations to their homeroom, whereas we will be having a challenge between homerooms to see who can donate the most items. Our L.E.A.D. Council has chosen to donate these items to the IMPACT Ankeny Pantry. IMPACT provides hundreds of Ankeny and rural Polk County residents with food and personal hygiene items every month. This is made possible partially by the community and the donations it makes. This is where we come in, just by donating a few items we can potentially make a huge positive impact on someone’s life. In light of the holiday spirit we want to give back to our community and we hope you do too!
