Kindergarten is an exciting and emotional time. On behalf of Bonner Elementary School, we look forward to welcoming you and your child this fall to ensure a smooth transition and a great start to school!
Children must be 5 years old on or before September 1st to enter kindergarten. We expect that all eligible kindergartners who reside in Stewartville will be attending in the fall. If you are unsure of your child’s plans for the fall of 2019; we still encourage you to register as this helps us to know our enrollment numbers for the kindergarten class and to keep the student-teacher ratio most current. If your child will be waiting until 2020-21 or attending school elsewhere; please contact the registration office once you’ve made your decision. Click here to complete your Decision Notification form. We cannot remove students without official notice from parents.
