TK/Kinder Registration 

An ENORMOUS Thank You to the most amazing kindergarten registration team:  Amanda, Michele, Angie, Rhea, Nicola, Deanna, Maureen, Cynthia, Cecilia, Kelsey and Lorie.

The day went so smoothly with help from all of you! You calmed nervous first time parents, hand-held them through the process and helped them notice what a caring environment we have at Hidden Valley.

You were AWESOME!!! We registered 102 new TK and kindergarten students on Tuesday.

For parents still needing to register, please see Kathy in the office. Spread the word to neighbors and friends!  — Kathy Kearins
