First Step

First Step is a voluntary Title I program which provides developmental school-readiness activities for 4 and 5 year olds. First Step Registration

Note to Current First Step Parents: Parents who have children in the First Step Program DO NOT have to register their children for kindergarten. Since your child is already in the NNPS school system, his or her school records were transferred to the next zoned school in June. It would be a good idea, however, to contact your zoned school to make sure everything is in order for your child to start kindergarten.
