In-House Registration has begun!!
The Weekday School is so excited about our new initiatives for the next school year and we wanted to make sure you are aware of the process of registration. We are looking forward to all the possibilities and wanted to communicate the way in which enrollment will be processed.
Mark your calendars for January 9, 2018 this begins the In-House enrollment. This includes current and former Weekday School families; as well as St. Matthew’s United Methodist Church members. In- House Registration will end on February 6, 2018. During this timeframe you will need to submit an electronic application, registration fee, and activity fee to hold your child’s place in their class of your preference. No paper forms will be accepted. The submission of forms are time stamped. We will check daily during this time to ensure that you are notified if a class becomes full. If a class is deemed full you will be provided with the availability of classes within your age range and/or option of the waitlist. There will be no need to physically line up for registration. You will only be contacted if a class is full.
