Kindergarten Registration


Westmont Hilltop School District kindergarten registration for 2018-2019 will be held Feb. 19, 20, and 21, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the elementary school office (827 Diamond Blvd). Children must be at least five years old by Sept. 1, 2018, to register. Bring your child's birth certificate, immunization records, and parent/guardian driver's license (or other proof of residency, such as mortgage agreement or utility bill). Children DO NOT need to be present to register. Please call 814-255-8707 with inquiries




We are trying to "get the word out" about Kindergarten Registration to all Westmont Hilltop families who might have a 4 or 5 year old kiddo at home.  If you would be willing to help us to advertise our registration dates, we would be very appreciative.  


Your assistance is needed in the following two ways.


1.  If you could, spread the word verbally to your friends in the community and encourage families with eligible children to register their kiddos for Kindergarten on Feb. 19, 20 or 21 at the ES from 9am-2pm (children do not need to be present to be registered). 

2.  If you live in a well traveled part of the district, would you please take a "Kindergarten Registration" sign home to post in your yard?  This will help us to advertise the scheduled window for registering children for Kindergarten!


Why is it so important to register children in February vs. August? When families register their children early, this allows us to get an accurate count of how many kiddos to expect in the fall.  We need to know this information so that we can plan to have enough teachers on staff to keep our kindergarten class numbers at an appropriate size.  If families wait until the summer months to register, we may not have planned for enough staff members to teach kindergarten (and then kindergarten class sizes end up being too high).  We understand that some families may not move into our district until the summer months (and would be unable to register their children until then); however, if we can get all current residents to register their children during our official registration window, that would really help us to get as close as possible with our official count.


Please see Missy Pastorek in the front office if you would be willing to place a kindergarten registration yard sign on your property.  Your help would be most appreciated!!


Children must be 5 years old prior to September 1st of 2018 to be eligible to register for kindergarten.
