Preschool is Coming to Desert Meadows

The Laveen District will be opening a preschool on the Desert Meadows campus for the 2018-19 school year.

During the 2017-18 school year, the district operated both a Dual Language Immersion preschool and a general education preschool on the campus of Paseo Pointe. Due to the popularity of the program, Paseo will only offer a Dual Language Immersion preschool going forward and the general education preschool will move to Desert Meadows.

Registration for both preschool program begins February 6, 2018.

Kindergarten Round Up is February 6 for Students Starting in August 2018

Parents with students starting Kindergarten in August 2018 are invited to register their child during our annual Kindergarten Round Up event on February 6 from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. You will also have the opportunity to meet the teachers and visit kindergarten classrooms. Children registered on this date will receive a free gift.

Kindergarten Round Up will take place at all Laveen schools with the exception of Vista del Sur, which requires an assessment prior to enrolling. Kindergartners enrolled at Paseo Pointe must be part of the Dual Language Immersion program, a 50/50 model where students spend half their day in a classroom where teaching and learning is conducted in Spanish and the other half in English.

Students may be enrolled in any of our schools regardless of where they live, space permitting. Families living outside of a particular school’s transportation zone will be responsible for providing transportation.

Please bring the following items to register your child.
* Proof of Residence (examples include: utility bill, rental agreement, mortgage statement, etc.)
* Child’s Immunization Record
* Child’s Original Birth Certificate (copies not accepted)
* Parent/Guardian’s Photo ID

Children must be 5 years old on or before August 31, 2018 to register. Children turning 5 after August 31, but by December 31, may be evaluated for early entrance in May.

Laveen offers free Full Day Kindergarten at all schools.
