Parkside Elementary School is a kindergarten through fifth grade school located at the southern end of Lake Winnebago in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. We are fortunate to serve a very culturally and linguistically diverse population of approximately 250 students. Our staff of over 50 dedicated professionals work together to provide a socially, emotionally, intellectually, and physically safe learning environment for our students and their families. Parkside participates in the AGR Program, which is a program that reduces class sizes in the primary grades, enabling us to provide more individualized attention and instruction to our earliest learners. It is our mission to do everything in our power to provide support to our students so that they can experience success and reach their highest potential. Every Child, Every Day, Whatever It Takes!

Kindergarten Registration for the 2021-22 School Year

5 year-old Kindergarten registration dates have been set for children who will be attending the Fond du Lac School District during the 2021-2022 school year.  Registration will begin on Monday, April 19, 2021, and will continue through Friday, April 23, 2021.
During the week of April 19th, parents of prospective kindergartners can register their child between 9:00 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. in person, or they can complete a survey link on our website at  Parents are also asked to bring proof of their child’s age in the form of a birth certificate or baptismal record when registering.  The original document will be returned to you.  Parents choosing to complete the survey link, and not register in person, can provide their documentation the 1st week of school. 
Wisconsin statutes state, “Except as provided in s.115.01(2) and s.115.28(8), no child may be admitted to kindergarten unless he or she is 5 years old on or before September 1, in the year he or she proposes to enter school.”  Children reaching their 5th birthday after September 1, but on or before December 1 may be admitted to kindergarten upon Administrative approval according to School Board Policy.  Requests for early entrance should be addressed to the Director of Pupil Services, 920-906-6520.
118.33(6)(cm) prohibits a school board or an independent charter school under Wis. Stat. Sec. 118.40(2r) from enrolling a child in first grade unless the child has completed 5-year-old kindergarten or has received an exemption.
Registration will take place at your attendance area school.  If you do not know the attendance area school your child should register at, please contact Wendy Burgess at 920-906-6524 or [email protected].
