The Ponca City Public School District is hosting a Prekindergarten and Kindergarten Informational Meeting for parents of all PreK and Kindergarten age students to be held on Tuesday, April 16.
The purpose of the meetings will be to share pertinent information with parents of 4- and 5-year-old students who will be attending Ponca City Public Schools during the upcoming 2019-20 school year.
The two meetings will be held at the Washington PreK Center, 1615 N. 7th Street. The PreK meeting will begin at 6 p.m. in the Washington gym and run until approximately 6:30 p.m. The Kindergarten meeting will begin at 6:45 p.m. in the Washington gym and run until approximately 7:15 p.m.
Parking can be found behind the building on Little Lane, and parents are encouraged to enter the gymnasium through the gym door off the parking lot. During the meetings, parents will learn more about the goals and expectations of the early childhood programs in Ponca City.
Parents will also be given information about registering students for the upcoming 2019-20 school year. The PreK registration window will begin on April 22 and will close at 4 p.m. May 3. Registration occurs at the PCPS Registration Center at 111 West Grand Avenue. Kindergarten students will register during the summer registration window, date and time to be released later.
PCPS Associate Director of Elementary Curriculum Teri Vogele said, “If your child will be attending PCPS during the 2019-20 school year as a PreK or Kindergarten student, the district highly recommends you attend these meetings. The administrators and teachers look forward to serving you and your child during these fundamental grade levels, where important foundational skills are mastered in preparation for a student’s future academic career. Make plans to attend your child’s grade level meeting, learn more about your child’s early childhood program, tour the PreK Center, and receive information on how to prepare your child for their first academic experience.”
