How do I register my kindergarten child at Waterville Community Elementary School?
Pre-Registration for Kindergarten usually begins in March. It is important to pre-register your child before the new school year begins. This will ensure that our office knows in advance how many kindergarten students to expect.
The following documents are required at the time of pre-registration.
- Birth Certificate
- Tennessee School Immunization Certificate - (To obtain this certificate, parents should contact their child's doctor or the health department and schedule an appointment for a kindergarten physical. Children must have either had a physical or have an appointment to get a physical before entering school.)
- Proof of Residence - (Acceptable proof includes a current utility bill, with the parent's name and address printed on it. If parents have not been living at the residence long enough to have a utility bill, a contract or lease of a house and/or apartment will be accepted.
- Social Security Card
