Kindergarten Roundup

Students must live in the Petal School District and be five years old on or before September 1 to be eligible for kindergarten.

Petal Primary School (PPS) will host its annual Kindergarten Roundup event beginning Monday, April 22 – Thursday, April 25. The event offers incoming kindergartners a head start to the upcoming school year, while giving families the opportunity to get them pre-registered. Students will also participate in a basic screener to evaluate their knowledge of letters, sounds, numbers and vocabulary, and to ensure there are no speech concerns.

The Roundup event schedule is as follows:

  • April 22, 23, 24: Petal Preschool Roundup – PPS will screen at all preschools in Petal. Please check with your center for more details.
  • April 25: Roundup for all others – PPS will screen any students not enrolled in preschool or those enrolled in preschool outside of Petal. Screenings will take place at the primary school.

Kindergarten Information Day will be held from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, May 4, at the PPS campus located at 60 Herrington Road in Petal. The purpose of this come-and-go event is to give incoming kindergartners and their families the chance to visit campus before the new school year begins. The tours will be self-guided with teachers and staff available to answer questions.
