Homework:  For those of you who have students who will be starting Kindergarten this year it’s time to be getting ready for registration.  Have you considered visiting your local public elementary and finding out when registration is, and what requirements there are to register?  Are you up to date on your child’s vaccinations?  These are things to think about now.  When I was going to register my first child into school, I knew there was a charter school not too far from my house and decided I would just visit it to see what it was all about and then compare it to the public school.  I had no intention of sending my son there but after visiting both schools, my husband and I agreed this was the school that would be best for our family.  I am so grateful that I took the time to do this.  In this valley there are a lot of options for elementary school so check them out. We really have an advantage when there are more then one choice.  Here is the schools that I know about.  There may be more I don’t know so start asking around and choose the school that you know will help your child succeed and you feel good about. 

Public school kindergarten is usually in March. I couldn’t find any specifics online so you may want to start with the school to get more information.   http://www.ccsdut.org/index.cfm

Thomas Edison Charter School-There is one in Nibley and one in North Logan.  Kindergarten is selected by lottery and they hold their lottery January 20th.  They require you to visit the school and observe two classrooms so you have an idea of the teaching philosophy.  They also have you view a short video before you can register.  The school is public so there is no tuition fee. We have loved our experience at this school.  http://www.thomasedisoncharterschool.org/north-campus/

Edith BowenLabSchool is up on USU campus.  There are also a public charter school with no tuition.  For information on admission visit: http://edithbowen.usu.edu/htm/admissions

Bear River CharterSchool:  located at 75 S 400 W.  This school is small and has small class sizes.  They only take 20 students per grade.  The school teaches K-8th grade.   Enrollment is done by lottery and that takes place Feb.  11 2012 so you may want to check into this soon if you are interested.  http://www.brcs-logan.org/
