Getting signed up: Parents sign children up for pre-k and kindergarten

Pre-Kindergarten programs at McDuffie County Schools proved to be popular again this year, as all 120 slots filled up in a matter of days last week.

Kimberly Johnson signs her son, Bryden, up for kindergarten at Thomson Elementary as three-year-old Evan Johnson colors.

Thomson Elementary, Dearing Elementary and Maxwell Elementary held registration, and according to Assistant Superintendent Kathy Collins, things went relatively smoothly despite some eager parents.

"I've been notified by a couple of parents, and I understand the principals have too, that we had parents here early in the morning and remember, on at least one of those mornings it was raining," she said.

Dr. Collins submitted a proposal to the Board of Education earlier this year that would have implemented a lottery process aimed at giving all parents a fair change to place their child in pre-k, but the board didn't think the measure was needed.

Dr. Collins said that most of the parents should be formally notified by the end of this week that their child will be enrolled in pre-k later this year.

"Right now we're still going through that list ourselves to make sure we have what's been completed and to see what we need," she said.
