KG Round-up

 Kindergarten Round-Up: Monday, March 27, 2017

Request Round Up Information

Here is how our information is received:

Lowell receives a list from Early Childhood Screening of incoming students that are in the Lowell boundary and have completed the Early Childhood Screening.  From this list we send  you notification of when our Kindergarten Round-up will be and what you should expect at Round-up.

If your child has not completed the Early Childhood Screening, please contact Kathy Johnson at 218-336-8816 or email ecscreening@isd709.org.  All students must complete an Early Childhood Screening before they can be enrolled in kindergarten.  

We are planning a fun-filled event for both the morning and evening round up sessions. Each child will be given a Lowell Lion PRIDE bag to fill as you explore the school. Here is what you can expect at Round-up:

  • Time to complete enrollment paperwork
  • Attend a pricipal led informational session to learn more about Lowell (10:15 am and 6:15 pm)
  • Child will receive a commemorative photo
  • Stop at the informational tables to collect trinkets
  • Visit the Kindergarten classrooms (English, Ojibwe, and/or Spanish)
  • Tour Lowell to get a feel for our building and sense of community
  • Visit a school bus
  • Learn more about after school child care
If you are planning on attending the morning session, we will have coffee and rolls in the media center. During the evening session, pizza will be served in the cafeteria following the principal led presentation.

Bring With You

In order to be fully enrolled at Lowell, you will need to submit three important documents along with the enrollment form. We will have a copy machine available during our event. Please bring the following with you to the school:

  • Copy of your child's birth certificate (this is a requirement of the State of Minnesota)
  • Copy of your child's immunization records
  • Proof of residency (a requirement of the district) Examples:
    • your property tax statement
    • a signed lease
    • a purchase agreement
    • your current utility bill

Lowell is a special location with language immersion options. You can elect to enroll your child in three different kindergarten options.  We offer a traditional English based Kindergarten program, and two language immersion options: Ojibwe and Spanish.  Staff will be on hand to discuss these options with you.

Don’t forget to get a trinket at all the stations and classrooms!

** Please note that MN law requires all students to go through Early Childhood Screening prior to entering Kindergarten.  You may call our ECS office at 218.336.8816 or email ecscreening@isd709.org to set up an appointment.
