CCS to offer three kindergarten information assistance sessions next week


With the many changes to kindergarten for the 2012-2013 school year, Carmel Clay Schools (CCS) is offering three information assistance sessions the week of March 26, 2012.  These evenings will include:

  • Assistance with online registration
  • Information about the tuition-free full-day kindergarten
  • Schedule May kindergarten screening
  • Accept registration paperwork requirements

Any 2012-2013 Carmel kindergarten families who are not currently registered with CCS are strongly encouraged to attend one of these sessions. Kindergarten families who are currently registered for next year should already have this information, but are still welcome.
