  • 2015-16 Kindergarten Registration
     
    Kindergarten Registration will be held on Tuesday, March 17, 2015, for the 2015-16 school year.  Parents and future kindergartners should come to Benjamin at either 9:30 A.M. or 1:30 P.M.  There will be a presentation at the beginning of both sessions, so please arrive promptly at the start time of the session you choose.  There will also be time to complete pre-registration forms.  Incoming kindergartners will meet the teachers and see the kindergarten commons.  They will be given a brief assessment.  At the end, they will be brought back to join their parents.  At this time, they will also be offered a special snack and a milk. We would also like to invite you to stop by the library with your student at the end of your meeting, we are hosting a book fair for new kindergarten families. 
     
    What  Should You Bring to Kindergarten Registration?
    *Your child's birth certificate (the one with the official stamp, not the one with their footprints)
    *2 documents that show proof of residency
    *If completed, your child's physical and immunization records and eye exam records
     
    The dental exam is not due until May of 2016.
    If you have any questions, please contact our office at (309)557-4410.  We look forward to seeing you on March 17th!

  • Do you plan to volunteer this year?
    Beginning with the 2009-2010 school year, anyone who volunteers at anytime in the Unit 5 school district must undergo a background check. If you are a first time volunteer or you are renewing please take a moment to review the information about the background check on our website. Refer to the Students and Parents tab and click on Volunteering to learn more  about completing the application. Thank you for supporting our school by donating your time!
