2018 Kindergarten Registration & Orientation



Registration for Kindergarten 2018-2019 for all Ashburnham and Westminster students who will be five years old by August 31, 2018 has begun.  

In Westminster, a three-part Kindergarten Orientation Program for students and their parents/guardians, will be held this spring.  The first session, on Friday, April 6th from 9:30 to 10:30 AM, is for parents/guardians only and will include a presentation on the Kindergarten Curriculum. Incoming kindergarten students and their parents/guardians are invited to attend the remaining sessions on Thursday, May 10 and Thursday, June 7, both of which will be held from 9:30 to 10:30 AM.  If your child is age eligible and you did not receive a registration packet, please contact Meetinghouse School at 978-874-0163 ext. 0 or email Mrs. McCarthy at kmccarthy@awrsd.org so that we may add your child onto our list of incoming students.

In Ashburnham, the Kindergarten Orientation program is planned for May 23rd from 9:00 to 10:30 AM.  Please come to the John R. Brigg’s Elementary School lobby on that day.  At approximately 9:15 parents/guardians will be invited to join our staff for quick introductions and a chance to ask questions. Registration packets may now be picked up at the Briggs Elementary School Office on school days between 8:00AM and 3:30 PM.  Parents/guardians of children who will be entering Kindergarten this fall are encouraged to call the Briggs Elementary School office (978-827-5750) or email Mrs. Pilsbury at bpilsbury@awrsd.org to assure that their child is included on the list of incoming kindergarten students.
