Students MariClare Nelson and Luke Triplett work on laptops with some help from teacher Amelia Murray during their Title 1 math class at the Sikeston Kindergarten Center. Enrollment and screening for kindergarten students for the 2009-2010 school year will be today through Thursday at the center, 1310 E. Salcedo. Eligible students must be 5 by July 31. Appointments are requested by calling 471-0653; the entire process is about half an hour and the child must be present. Parents need to provide the school with the child's state-issued birth certificate, immunization record, social security card, Medicaid card (if applicable) and proof of residency. Even if all documents are not currently available, children should still be enrolled.
