UPK registration begins for Fulton schools


Registration for Fulton City School District’s 2017-2018 Universal Pre-Kindergarten program is now open.
 
Morning and afternoon programs are offered in partnership with Oswego County Opportunities, the Fulton YMCA, First Step Universal Pre-K and Pinnacle and are held at each FCSD elementary school: Volney, Granby, Fairgrieve and Lanigan.
 
Eligible children must turn four years of age on or before Dec. 1. As the pre-k students embark on their educational venture, their experiences will include field trips, social and emotional development, Common Core-aligned language and literacy development and physical development.
 
The UPK program is solely funded through a grant from the New York State Education Department and is available to families in the Fulton Community at no cost.
 
Registration is available from 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Mondays to Fridays by visiting the Fulton Education Center, 167 S. Fourth St., Fulton. Parents and/or guardians are required to bring the following information: an original birth certificate (with raised seal), the child’s up-to-date immunization record and proof of residency.
 
Application packets may be found on the district website, www.fultoncsd.org. Contact the school district’s Central Registrar’s office at 315-593-5513 for more information.
