Events and Promotions for Pre-K Families

Franklin County Schools (FCS) wants families in the area to get acquainted with our school community!

We have several events and activities in the coming months for those who are:

  • Currently enrolled in a FCS Pre-Kindergarten Program;
  • In a nearby child care center;
  • Families who are still exploring their options for early childhood education. 

We will be holding guided school tours for rising kindergartners in March. All families who attend will receive a kindergartner readiness bag (one per household) just for coming out to see what our schools have to offer.

If your child attends a Pre-K program at another school, please be on the lookout for our parent nights. Anyone who attends will also receive a kindergartner readiness bag (one per household), as well as valuable information about our school system, academic rigor, and family-like atmosphere.

Please be on the look-out for registration information. This year, we will also offer online registration in several public store locations for your convenience. You can register your child for kindergarten while shopping or getting a meal! We will continue to update the district website and our social media pages as we confirm days and times. 

Finally, we want to invite all prospective parents out to some of our events for current families. Please see the schedule below. If you are interested in attending, contact the school directly.
