If you have an incoming kindergarten student for the 2022-2023 school year, mark your calendar for a night you don’t want to miss. We will have a Kindergarten Registration Night on Wednesday, May 11th from 5:30-6:30. This will be a time for parents to return completed registration paperwork, turn in birth certificates and proof of residency, turn in any completed medical forms, meet staff and take a walk throughout the halls of Blackstone School. If you have a child coming, but you haven’t picked up a registration packet, please call our office to pick one up before May 11th.
