24-25 Kindergarten

Converse #1 uses a comprehensive enrollment process for incoming kindergarten students.  This process familiarizes your child with school, gives teachers vital information to meet your child's needs, and ensures the district meets all statutory requirements and WDE rules. The steps include:

Step 1 (February - May)

Kindergarten Round-up.  This is the process used to get all incoming kindergarten students enrolled for the upcoming school year. By pre-enrolling your child, the school has the vital information in order to prepare and communicate with families before school begins.

Click here to fill out the Kindergarten Round-up Form. 

Step 2 (May)

Kindergarten Screening. This process asks parents/guardians to bring their incoming kindergarten student for a short kindergarten screening to include academic and social skills knowledge.  The parent/guardians also participate in a short interview so the school can develop a greater understanding of the child. 

Kindergarten Enrollment.  Parents who attended the Kindergarten roundup will receive an email in May to guide them through the enrollment process.  Follow the steps below to fill out the online pre-enrollment packet when it's available.  The enrollment may be filled out on any mobile device or computer. Computers are available at your child's school if needed.  If you did not participate in the Kindergarten roundup in May, please contact your child's school to get the process started.

Please be aware that the Enrollment portal is NOT the Parent PowerSchool portal, and does not use the same login information. Follow the directions below for instructions on completing registrations.

You will need the following information to complete the registration:
  • Medical insurance information (company name and policy number).
  • Medicaid information (if any).
  • Contact information for all legal parents or guardians.
  • Contact information for any emergency contacts.
  • Addresses for bus pickup (if any). After school transportation must be identified which will allow staff to prepare transportation tags for the first day of school, this allows the district to safely return your child every day after school.
  • Picture or PDF of the legal birth certificate for the child*. Note: The registration can be filled out on your mobile device, and you can upload a photo from your phone. Or you can take a picture on your phone, email it to yourself, save it and upload it when completing the registration online.
*Under the McKinney-Vento Homeless Act, qualifying families are eligible to enroll their child in school without a birth certificate. If assistance is needed, please call Penny Hawk, McKinney-Vento homeless coordinator at (307) 358-6187.

Step 3 (July):

Jumpstart. This is a FREE preparatory program for all incoming kindergarten students.  The program takes place in July before school starts and students learn the rules and expectations for being a new kindergartener.  Students are given free snacks and lunch during the weeklong camp where they meet the kindergarten teachers and other support staff within the school.
