Cummings Valley to hold kindergart­en roundup

- BY PAM JOHNSON Contributi­ng writer Pam Johnson is secretary to the principal at Cummings Valley Elementary School.

Cummings Valley School will hold its annual Kindergart­en Roundup for all new incoming 2023-2024 transition­al kindergart­en and kindergart­en students from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 12 in the school’s multipurpo­se room.

Parents who live in the CVS attendance area (Bear Valley Springs, Stallion Springs, Alpine Forest, Cummings Valley, Brite Valley and some parts of the city of Tehachapi) are encouraged to bring their children to this fun event, so they can have all their questions answered about starting kindergart­en or transition­al kindergart­en for the 2023-24 school year.

To determine if your address falls within the CVS boundaries, or which school is your child’s school of attendance, please consult the TUSD website at tehachapiu­sd. com. This Kindergart­en Roundup event is not a time to enroll your student; all enrollment­s must be completed online at the TUSD website.

Because next year’s CVS theme is “Cummings Valley School is Out of This World,” all attending incoming kindergart­en students will receive a fun space-themed goodie bag after they complete an informal skills assessment. The school will also have fun play activities for kids while parents receive informatio­n on daycare, busing and transporta­tion, food service, how to become involved in the PTO and more.

Per California Education Code, students must turn 5 years old on or before Sept. 1, 2023 to enroll in kindergart­en. For transition­al kindergart­en, students must turn 5 years old between Sept. 1, 2023 and April 2, 2024.
