Updates for the 2016-17 School Year
  • Due to high enrollment, we will have 9 Kindergarten classrooms at FECC.
  • Our 2 Young 5 classrooms will be housed at Schavey Road, but will still be closely aligned with the early childhood programming at Fuerstenau. 
  • We are welcoming two new teachers:
    • Kristen Luedtke: Our new Young 5's teacher, Kristen comes to us with a Bachelor's Degree in elementary education from MSU, with an early childhood endorsement. 
    • Erin Jimmerson: Our new Kindergarten teacher is a DeWitt graduate, with a bachelor's degree in elementary education from CMU and 4 years teaching experience.
  • DeWitt Public School will be utilizing early release days for the 2016-17 school year, to provide professional development for our staff. We will also be offering childcare on these early release days to support our families.

    -All students in Young 5 through 4th grade can register for early release care, whether or not you currently use the KIDS before- and after- school programs. Although the early release care will be run by the KIDS staff, it will be a separate program than our before- and after-school care. 

    -To register for early release care: 

    • Students currently registered for KIDS before- and after-school care can register through their monthly calendar.

    • Student only needing early release care will register using the Early Release Care Enrollment Packet, which is attached. 

    • Early Release Care Enrollment Packets, and the associated fee, can be turned in at Community Education, or after August 18th, at any elementary building.

    • The deadline to register for Early Release Care is September 7th

    -Other information: 

    • Students will have access to purchase lunch or can pack their own.

    • Early Release Care Registration is for all 9 sessions. In order to staff and prepare, families must register for all 9 sessions by September 7th. There is no partial registration.
