Education News in Brief
Kindergarten registration underway
The three elementary schools in Brattleboro have begun kindergarten registration for children who turn 5 on or before Sept. 1, 2020. Families who have not received a packet through their child's preschool should request one by contacting Renee Baker at Windham Southeast Supervisory Union Central Office at 802-254-3730. Registration paperwork and documentation should be returned to the Central Office, 53 Green St., by Tuesday, Feb. 18. Families who would like to register for kindergarten in outlying town schools (Dummerston, Putney, Guilford and Vernon) should call their school directly.
Contact Deb Kardane, WSESU Curriculum and Assessment Coordinator, with any questions regarding kindergarten registration.
Valentine's Day sale to benefit scholarship fund
Valentine treats are some of the items that will be offered by the Brattleboro branch of the American Association of University Women at the group's fundraiser at the Guilford Welcome Center this Friday.
Profits from the event will benefit the AAUW scholarship fund that provides annual scholarships for female high school graduates and mature women working on degrees.
Muffins, bagels, sandwiches, chili and other breakfast and lunch items will be offered to travelers for a donation. Special Valentine-themed meringues and cupcakes packaged for gift giving are also planned for the day-long event.
Pre-K registration underway
The Windham Southeast School District offers pre-kindergarten education at Guilford, Putney, Dummerston, and Oak Grove schools for children who are 4 years old by Sept. 1, 2020. Pre-k follows the school calendar and is for a full school day. Enrollment will be decided by March 16. Call the school to request a registration packet: Guilford residents call 802-254-2271; Putney residents call 802-387-5521; Dummerston residents call 802-254-2733; and Brattleboro residents call 802-254-3740. Registration packets are due back to the school by March 13. Space in these programs is limited; if there are more children than spots available, a lottery will be used to fill the classes.
