Unbelievably the school year is half complete meaning that Montpelier School is looking towards the 2017-2018 school year. There are many factors in planning for a school year and at the top of that list is determining the number of students that will be attending. The school has a solid idea of the students that will be in grades 1-12 but less sure for kindergarten and preschool.
Currently there will be seven kindergarten students for next year based on our preschool numbers. However, incoming kindergarten students are not required to have attended preschool to be enrolled in kindergarten next year. Kindergarten is full time with students having class all day Monday through Friday for the entire year. The preschool program runs all day on Tuesdays and Thursdays during the first semester. The second semester adds a third day, Friday, to the preschool schedule. Preschool is limited to eight students and there is no cost for the program. To be eligible for preschool the student must turn 4 years old by August 1. Bus transportation is available for kindergarten and preschool students.
Montpelier School requests that any parent of a potential preschooler or kindergartner contact the school to express their interest in sending their student to the school. If you do not have a child in this age range but know of a child please share this information with their parents. The school is developing plans to best serve the needs of all students and the community and with your assistance it will be able to do so. If you have any questions or want to contact the school to express interest in either preschool or kindergarten call Mr. Waagen at the school at 489-3348.
