  Last chance to register for W’bridge kindergarten
The Woodbridge School District will conduct its final kindergarten registration for the 2004-2005 school year Thursday, July 29, 9 a.m. to noon at Woodbridge Elementary School in Greenwood. A child is eligible for kindergarten if he or she is 5 years of age or older on or before Aug. 31, 2004. Registrants must have all the following documents in order to enroll:
