New Student Registration

For Grades Kindergarten - 5

Children must be 5 years old by August 31st to enter Kindergarten.

It's important to register your soon-to-be Kindergarten student so we can plan ahead for the 2018-2019 school year so we can secure the number of classrooms and teachers needed for the fall enrollment. If you have friends, relatives or neighbors who live in Stoughton, and will be registering a kindergarten age child, please pass on this information.

Kindergarten Registration for all elementary schools was Wednesday March 28, 2018.

Kindergarten Orientation at the West School is Tuesday June 12, 2018 at 10am. This orientation is for parents/guardians and incoming students.

After your child is registered, please join incoming West School Kindergarten students and their families for our annual playtime! Meet your school Parent Liaison, Susan Lyons, the teachers and other families at your child’s new school, on the West School Playground on Wednesday, August 29, 2018 from 10:30 to 11:30am. (In case of rain, we will meet in the cafeteria.) Please RSVP by Tuesday, August 21st to Jeff Wolff, the Stoughton Parent Engagement Center's Parent Coordinator, at or call 781-344-7003 ext 7305. 

West School Kindergarten information and registration paperwork is available at the bottom of this page. Please contact the school office for a paper copy of the Kindergarten Registration Form. Kindergarten registration packets are also available for pick up at the West School.

Please plan ahead and get a certified copy of your child's birth certificate from the town or city hall in the location where your child was born. You will also need 2 proofs of residency, such as a current lease or mortgage statement and a current utility bill. This requirement also applies to students who currently attend the Jones Preschool program.

Kindergarten Registration must be complete in order to enter on September 2018. Until a student's registration is complete, he/she will not be assigned to a classroom and may not begin in September 2018.

Families of new students in Grades 1 - 5 can also print and fill out the paperwork at the bottom of this page before registering at the West School office.
