Lawrenceburg Primary School News

Welcome to our News page! Here you will learn about the exciting events happening at LPS along with activities for which we might need help from some of our amazing volunteers. Check back here often to see updates.

Kindergarten Round-Up

Please join us for kindergarten round-up on Thursday, April 12 from 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. at Lawrenceburg Primary School. Children must be present and must be five years of age on or before August 1, 2018. We will test your child during this one day registration event. Please see our kindergarten round-up flyer for more information.

We are excited to announce that we will be administering kindergarten round-up a little different this year. We have enhanced the process to provide our new kindergarten students and parents with the tools necessary by providing individual student information following their appointment. This will enhance their individual skills so that they will be prepared for kindergarten. Appointment scheduling will be required and times will be filled upon availability. You must have an appointment for registering your new kindergarten student for the 2018-2019 school year. We have worked extremely hard to make kindergarten round-up more effective. Appointment scheduling is now available and we look forward to seeing you!
