Kindergarten Registration Is Now Open In Great Falls

I'm not going to lie; It was exciting and incredibly nerve-racking!

However, kindergarten registration is just as nerve-racking for many parents as the first time their child heads off to school.

As summer begins to knock at our doorstep, 15 elementary schools in Great Falls are gearing up to open their doors for kindergarten registration.
