Parents of children with a fifth birthday between June 1st and September 1st, 2017 who wish to enroll their child into a TK class, MUST place their name on a District Interest Wait List. After March 1, 2016, at 8:00 AM, go to the District Website and select "TK Interest Wait List" to put your child's name on the list. The assigned TK school site will notify parents on the Interest List starting in June, or later in the summer, of an opening in TK. The parent will then be given 48 hours to enroll. Due to increased numbers of students required to enroll in TK, please note space is very limited and will be determined on a first-come, first served basis.
 “Registration Request” forms for 2017-2018 will be accepted February 1st - March 1st. The form is available and can be completed online:  All completed forms are automatically sent directly to the PUSD Preschool Administration Office.  A lottery process may be required if the requests for a class exceeds openings in the class. Parents will be notified starting the week of March 13th about class placements or wait list status. Registration request forms received after March 1st will be processed in the order received. Children must be 3 before September 1st to enroll in preschool.

If our team gets 50 people signed up, we will get a booth! As of right now we have 23 signed up. I hope you will join the Sunset Hills team in running/walking on Saturday, March 4th at Balboa Park. Money raised from this run provides scholarships for students around the county. It is a wonderful family event and it is a lot of fun running/walking through Balboa Park and on the 163!. Last year our school won the contest for the smallest school to have the highest amount of people signed up. Let's do it again this year!
Our team name is Sunset Hills Seagulls
