Spanish, Amharic, Tigrinya and Korean interpreters will be available.

Limited, no-cost childcare will be available on-site for children over 2 years old who are potty-trained  (sponsored by the Shoreline Children’s Center). Please note that food will not be allowed in the childcare room due to possible allergies.

Kindergarten registration will begin on Tuesday, February 4th at your neighborhood school. Registration is not on a first-come, first-served basis. All students registered by the close of business on February 28th will be put in a drawing to fill Kindergarten spaces available at their neighborhood schools. Incoming kindergarten students who have a sibling at their neighborhood school will be given priority placement (at their neighborhood school) if registered prior to the close of business on February 28th. Those registering after February 28th will be added to their neighborhood school's wait list as they register.

Girls on the Run

Girls on the Run is registering now! Girls on the Run is a girl empowerment program that teaches girls important life skills while creatively integrating running and walking. This program is 10-weeks long and is for 3rd-6th grade students that identify as female. The program culminates in a celebratory, non-competitive 5K (3.1 miles).

Girls on the Run is for every girl – the curriculum includes adaptations for girls with sensory, intellectual and physical disabilities. Girls on the Run also provides unlimited scholarships and running shoes and sports hijabs for any girl in need. More information about financial aid can be found here: You will be able to communicate your financial aid needs and request shoes or hijabs for your girl within the online registration form.

Girl Registration opens January 10th, 2020. The team size is 8-15 girls and a random lottery will be used to select the 15 girls for the team if more than 15 girls apply between January 10th-24th. The last day to sign up, if spots are still available, is March 9th, 2020. Note that the website indicates that is only offered for students through 5th grade but 6th graders are included at Syre.
