Kindergarten is the beginning of a formal educational process where a child will interact with his/her peers and teachers to discover a new learning environment. Allegheny Valley began a full-day Kindergarten program in the 2013-14 school year. This program follows the regular elementary day schedule. It consists of instruction in the core subject areas and a full range of special subjects. Essential Kindergarten skills are taught, allowing for more in-depth skill development for students.
Requirements for Kindergarten
Children turning age 5 before September 1st of the school year are eligible for admission to Kindergarten classes. Kindergarten registration is usually held during the month of March. At this time, parents are asked to come to the Acmetonia Elementary School office to complete all necessary paperwork and schedule an appointment for the screening of their child. These appointments are held in the month of June and evaluate readiness skills of the student. Parents must present an original birth certificate, proof of residency, and a complete record of immunization for their child at the March registration.
