2015 Registration Schedule
CP&PKR - Each fall, every AA student must be registered through the American Academy All School Registration process, including KindiePrep students.

The AA All School Registration takes place in person at American Academy and the dates and times are listed below.

August 12, 12:00 pm – 6:00 pm
August 13, 9:00 am – 3:00 pm

K-5 School code: CZA
6-8 School code: CZB

K-5 School code: CZC
6-8 School code: CZD

Order Last-Chance EduKits Through August 4
CP&PKR -Don't forget! You can still order EduKits for 2015-2016 school supplies, though orders place after June 10 will delivered to your home instead of the classroom.

TDAP Immunizations REQUIRED for 15-16 Grade 6
CP&PKR - Important! Because of the current, state-wide pertussis epidemic, all incoming 2015-2016 6th graders MUST receive the Tdap immunization prior to beginning the next school year!

Even if your child has been previously immunized, he or she MUST be revaccinated before the start of the 2015-2016 school year to ensure immunity and public safety. Please read the attached letter from our district nurse, Paulette Joswick, and contact Ms. Joswick if you have any questions about this requirement.
