If you have a friend or neighbor with a child who is eligible for Kindergarten next school year, please encourage them to call one of the school buildings. By putting your child’s name on our Kindergarten list, you will be assured of receiving additional information about “Round Up” as well as additional registration information.

Please make every possible effort to attend Round Up but if you cannot make it that day, please call the building anyway so that we have a more accurate count for next fall.  All buildings run a morning (9AM) and an afternoon (1 PM) session that day.

Parents who are undecided about whether or not to send their child to Kindergarten or Pre-Kindergarten are encouraged to attend both the PK informational night on March 23rd at 6:00 PM at Central Office, and also Kindergarten Round Up for that school in order to obtain the most accurate information for decision making.

Free Vision Screening will be provided at all sites courtesy of the Eldridge Lions Club. The screening at Ed White will take place between 10:30 and 1:00. Please stay after the first session or come early to the second session for this vision screening.

Ed White Student Council will be holding their annual Valentine's Day Sale.  The sale will be held Monday, February 8th through Friday, February 12.  There will be sale tables set up in two locations, the front lobby by the office and in the hallway by the media center. The tables will be set up in the mornings from 7:45-8:00 and in the afternoon 3:05-3:20.  We will be selling paper valentines for fifty cents a piece.  Students who buy a valentine will decorate it on their own, write who it is to be delivered to and who it is from.  Then they will drop the valentine in a box to be delivered. Student council members will be delivering the valentines on Friday, February 12 during school.  If students want to buy a valentine for a family member or friend that does not attend Ed White, they absolutely may do that!  They just won't add it to the box to be delivered on the 12th.
