BLANCHESTER — Blanchester schools are set to welcome the Class of 2029 in Wildcat Style.

Putman Elementary will be having two kindergarten sign-up nights, on Tuesday, April 10 from 4:30-6 p.m. and Thursday, April 19 from 4:30-6 p.m.

Every child that attends gets a free Putman Elementary Kindergarten t-shirt. Attendance at one of these two nights is the only way to get the shirt

Kindergarten registration packets will be available for the 2018-2019 school year on each of these nights. When you attend one of these nights, please bring the forms listed below (with the exception of the registration packet) to be copied. You will also fill out the registration, upon arrival, and meet the teachers.

Once you complete the packet that evening, you will turn it in to a teacher, and your child will receive their shirt.

If you do not attend either of these nights, packets will be available, starting Wednesday, April 20 at the Putman Elementary School office between 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.

Children are eligible to attend kindergarten for the 2018-2019 school year if they are 5 years old by Aug. 1, 2018. When attending one of the sign-up nights or picking up your packet, you will be asked to sign up for a screening time during the week of April 30-May 4.
