Pre-K Roundup Time is Coming!
Enrolling Students in Pre-Kindergarten for the 2017-2018 School Year
Sperry Pre-Kindergarten Roundup:
Enrollment for the 2017-2018 School Year
Sperry Public Schools will hold pre-kindergarten enrollment on Thursday, April 6th, 2017 from 9 AM to 2 PM in the Early Childhood Building.
Pre-kindergarten enrollment is for children who are currently four years of age, or who will be four years old by September 1, 2017.
Parents need to bring with them the following:
- proof of residency within the Sperry School district (residents of Quail Hollow require a property tax receipt),
- current utility bill showing your name and physical address,
- certified birth certificate,
- current immunization record,
- driver’s license/ state-issued identification, and
- applications for transfer will be available upon request.
All applications must complete a Home Language Survey for the 2017-2018 school year, and assistance in completing this form will be available for those who need it. Parents should bring the Indian Card for Native American students.
The Caring Van will be on campus to provide immunizations for those who qualify. All shots must be current prior to enrollment. Required immunizations for students entering pre-kindergarten include 4 DTP (diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus), 3 OPV/IPV (polio), 1 MMR (measles, mumps, rubella), 3 hepatitis B, 2 hepatitis A, and 1 varicella (chicken pox). The Caring Van will also be available for 6th grade students who have not received the 1 Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis) booster which is required before they begin 7th grade. For additional information, call (918) 288-7213, ext. 145.
Sperry Elementary School provides a full-day pre-kindergarten program. Pre-kindergarten is not required by the state of Oklahoma; however, Sperry Public Schools recognizes the value of important foundational knowledge provided and social interaction opportunities within a pre-kindergarten program.
Curriculum in all pre-kindergarten classes is based on the notion that all children can learn and this learning at this early age is most easily achieved through play. Developmentally appropriate activities are designed to provide real life experiences and to build on a child’s previous knowledge base. Sperry’s pre-kindergarten program teaches standards related to fine and gross motor skills, social/emotional skills, intellectual skills, reading skills, and math skills. Skills taught include daily lessons that build the foundation for future reading and math skills, as well as fostering social and emotional skills that will be essential for success in the kindergarten program. Sperry pre-kindergarten students enjoy active learning experiences that are age appropriate and prepare them for the rigors of kindergarten.
While enrollment is not required to be completed on April 6, class sizes are limited, and enrollment is on a first served basis. Once classes are filled, students will be put on a waiting list, and parents will be notified of openings if and when they occur.
We look forward to meeting all our new pre-kindergarten students who will be attending Sperry during the 2016-2017 school year.
