In honor of Teacher Appreciation Week, Quincy Public Schools is celebrating the dedicated teachers and staff at all of our schools who challenge their students to set high goals and inspire them to develop a lifelong love of learning. From the youngest students in preschool to high school students preparing to graduate to college or careers, our students grow and learn because of these nurturing and caring professionals.
At the 17th Annual Community Service Learning Celebration, students from the Quincy Public Schools were recognized for their committment to their schools and the greater community. Over the course of this school year, students raised funds for Quincy Track Club scholarships, Project Smile, the Make a Wish Foundation, Project Bread, and many other organizations. Students served as peer mentors, tutors, volunteered at food banks, and were a part of Cleaner Greener Quincy at sites all over the city.
Quincy Public Schools’ Kindergarten Registration for the 2014–2015 school year is now underway. Children who will be 5 years of age on or before August 31, 2014 should be registered at their home schools. Please call your home school to make an appointment to register as soon as possible. Children do not need to attend registration.
If you are not sure which school is your home school, click here for the street directory. Please note that parents of students seeking open enrollment must register the student at their home school.
If your child presently attends the Pre-Kindergarten programs at either the Snug Harbor School or the Amelio Della Chiesa Early Childhood Center, it is not necessary to register your child for Kindergarten.
The following documents must be produced in order for a student to be registered:
a. Child’s birth certificate (with a raised seal)
b. Proof that the child resides in the home school district (any two: tax bill, utility bill, copy of lease, car registration)
c. Photo I.D. of the adult seeking to enroll the student
d. Copy of a recent (within one year) physical examination by a physician
e. Written records of immunizations
Questions regarding the kindergarten program may be directed to your home school principal. If you do not feel comfortable filling out the necessary forms, please feel free to bring someone that could assist you.
We look forward to having your child enter our Kindergarten program in the fall.
