Young Child School Information
What can I do to prepare my child for the transition to school?
The transition to school is an exciting time for you and your child. Your excitement and confidence will help your child view school as a fun, positive place to be.
Get connected with your child’s school -- be sure to register early!
Kindergarten registration in the Appleton Area School District is typically held the last week in January but you can register your child at any time. If your child is eligible to attend kindergarten in the fall, you will need to contact your school of residence to complete the registration paperwork.
The AASD offers several activities for children entering kindergarten in the fall, as this is a time of transition for both children and their parents. Parents/guardians are encouraged to attend a 3-5 Year Old Developmental Screening with their child.
In addition, most elementary schools offer a Kindergarten Open House for parent and child to learn about their neighborhood school and the transition to kindergarten.
Welcome visits are offered to families with incoming kindergarten students.
Finally, the AASD offers "Kindergarten, Here I Come!" a summer school program for children entering kindergarten in the fall.
