Reeths-Puffer Schools

Welcome to Reeths-Puffer Schools Kindergarten Registration

Kindergarten Round-Up

Central Elementary, Twin Lake Elementary and Reeths-Puffer Elementary
Kindergarten Roundup will be held in April (see dates for each building below).


It's never too early to prepare your child for Kindergarten.  The reason to get a child ready early, is so he or she has a good start at "the big school." This time can be exciting and stressful for the whole family.  Children ask where they will be going and what they will be doing.  Parents have lots of questions too.  Kindergarten Round-Up is the time to get those questions answered.


2019-2020 School Year

According to Michigan law, a child must be 5 years of age by September 1 to be enrolled in Kindergarten at Reeths-Puffer Schools.  However, if a child residing in the Reeths-Puffer Schools' attendance area is not 5 years of age on September 1 but will be 5 years of age not later than December 1, the parent or legal guardian of that child may enroll the child in kindergarten for the current school year if the parent or legal guardian completes the Kindergarten waiver form (see right hand column) and submits it to the school at registration.


Each elementary school in the Reeths-Puffer School District will hold a Kindergarten Round-Up.  Information will be shared regarding  transportation, food service, and a general overview of R-P's Kindergarten program. 


Kindergarten Round-Up is the time parents can turn in paperwork that is available a head of time (see right hand column) or you may pick up necessary paperwork at any elementary office.

If you can't make the scheduled Kindergarten Round-Up, give the office a call and schedule an appointment to meet with the building principal. 


Two sessions are being held at Central and Reeths-Puffer Elementary so the audience is smaller and conversation and tours are easier and quicker.  The important thing is that parents attend Kindergarten Round-Up. 

Free day care will be provided during Kindergarten Round-Up at all locations!


Breakfast and Lunch Programs:  Students will have the opportunity to participate in both the breakfast and lunch programs at their elementary building.


Kindergarten is a new and exciting time for your child. The goal of Reeths-Puffer Schools is to build on that excitement and create a positive atmosphere for life long learning.


  • If you miss Kindergarten Round-Up, call the school for your own personal tour.
  • Feel free to contact the building principal or secretary with questions.  Important forms and curriculum information are available in the right hand column of this web page.
