Welcome Class of 2032!

We are bubbling with excitement to welcome new children and families - so much so we don't want to wait until August to meet you! Join our excitement and help us kick off 2019-20 registration with a bang by taking part in Project Kindergarten.

Throughout the months of February-April, attend fun-filled events where you and your children will interact with exciting elements of elementary school (iPads, makerspaces, and more), meet teachers and administrators, see what it's like to be part of the RCSNC family! 

Below you will find dates of events, links to great "Kindergarten 101" content, and information about registration.
