2019-20 Kindergarten Registration Information

Dear Parents/Guardians:

It is time to register children for Kindergarten for the 2019-20 school year. Students who are at least 5 years of age by December 1, 2019 (birthdate on or before 12/1/2013) are eligible to attend Kindergarten in September 2019. Students will be assigned to either Pieter B. Coeymans or A.W. Becker Elementary School based upon their residence address.
Parents are encouraged to attend one of the Community Fun Fairs to register their child for Kindergarten:

Pieter B. Coeymans Elementary School
66 Church Street, Coeymans
Tuesday, January 15, 4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.

A. W. Becker Elementary School
1146 Route 9w, Selkirk
Thursday, January 17, 4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.

The Fun Fairs are co-sponsored by the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Community Library, and will feature crafts, snacks, and other activities for young children, and information for parents, in addition to the opportunity to register for pre-kindergarten and kindergarten.
If you are unable to attend a Fun Fair, you can register in person at the District Offices at 15 Mountain Road in Ravena. Please call the Registrar (518-756-5200 x6014) on or after January 18 to make an appointment.

The following documents will be required for registration:

  • Child’s Birth Certificate
  • Identification of registering parent (i.e. Driver’s License)
  • Two Proofs of Residency (see Registration Cover Letter for more details)
  • Completed Enrollment Form

If the student has an IEP (Individualized Education Plan) or there is applicable Custody Documentation, please bring these to registration as well.

You must also submit immunization records and a Health Appraisal Form prior to the beginning of school in September. Students who are missing these records will NOT be allowed to attend school.

During registration, you will select a screening date for your child. This early childhood screening inventory will be conducted by a teacher, nurse, speech therapist, and occupational or physical therapist. These appointments are held on an individual basis and will be scheduled for one of the following dates:
A.W. Becker: April 8-11, 2019
Pieter B. Coeymans: April 15-18, 2019

If you have any questions about the Kindergarten program or your child’s readiness for Kindergarten, you will have an opportunity to address them at your child’s screening and at the Parent Orientation. Our teachers will also discuss the Kindergarten curriculum at the Parent Orientation held at each school.

If you have any additional questions or if your plans change before the start of school, please contact the registrar or building principals. We look forward to working with you as your child begins this exciting experience in learning.

Sincerely,
Hakim Jones, Principal Pieter B. Coeymans Elementary School
