MPS hosts Kindergarten Enrollment Fair on February 1, 2020

Kindergarten StudentsMPS will host its annual Kindergarten Enrollment Fair on February 1, 2020, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Milwaukee High School of the Arts. The Fair will help families explore schools, make choices, and enroll students for fall 2020. Wisconsin law requires children to complete five-year-old kindergarten before entering first grade.

All MPS schools that offer Head Start and kindergarten will be on hand so families can ask questions, learn about programs, and identify the best options for their children. Families will have the chance to speak directly with school staff and get help filling out enrollment forms. Interpreters will be available. Children are welcome at the fair so they can begin experiencing a school setting and be ready to attend in fall.

Families can learn about the many programs and offerings in MPS schools. The district provides free breakfast and lunch for all students. Many schools have before- and after-school care to accommodate parents. Bus transportation is available; each school can provide information. Uniforms are worn by students in many MPS schools.
