Parents who want their children considered for early admission into a Hamilton School District 5-year-old kindergarten or first grade class next fall should apply in writing by March 1 to their elementary school principal. Application forms are available at elementary school offices.
Children who turn five on or before Sept. 1, 2005 meet normal entrance age requirements for the 2005-06 5-year-old kindergarten class; those who turn six on or before Sept. 1, 2005 are eligible to enter first grade.
Parents making application will meet with the principal. During that time, a brief interview will take place and the application will be completed. The child should demonstrate superior intellectual development, superior language skills and advanced physical, social and emotional maturity. Parents will be contacted no later than mid-March 2005 about the next step in the process.
For more information about early admission, contact an elementary school principal or Special Services Supervisor Charlene DeGroot at (262) 246-1973 ext. 1184.
