Battle's PreK is a welcome addition to our program. Teacher Alexine Boochie and Assistant Carmen Craig spend their days preparing their 20 students for a successful entry into kindergarten.Applications for the 2013-2014 school year will be accepted beginning May 6, 2013. Students must be four years old on or before August 31, 2013. Our PreK is an income-based program with admissions priority given to families eligible for free or reduced price lunch; however, all families may apply. You do not have to reside in Battle's school zone to apply; however, no priority for admission into kindergarten at Battle is given to PreK students. Please bring your child's Social Security card, an original certified birth certificate, 2 proofs of residence, immunization/physical record and proof of family income to registration.
