          Registration for Kindergarten 2018-2019 for all Ashburnham and Westminster students who will be five years old by August 31, 2018 has begun. 

In Westminster, a three-part Kindergarten Orientation Program for students and their parents/guardians, will be held this spring.  The first session, on Friday, April 6th from 9:30 to 10:30 AM, is for parents/guardians only and will include a presentation on the Kindergarten Curriculum. Incoming kindergarten students and their parents/guardians are invited to attend the remaining sessions on Thursday, May 10 and Thursday, June 7, both of which will be held from 9:30 to 10:30 AM.  If your child is age eligible and you did not receive a registration packet, please contact Meetinghouse School at 978-874-0163 ext. 0 or email Mrs. McCarthy at so that we may add your child onto our list of incoming students.

In Ashburnham, the Kindergarten Orientation program is planned for May 23rd from 9:00 to 10:30 AM.  Please come to the John R. Brigg’s Elementary School lobby on that day.  At approximately 9:15 parents/guardians will be invited to join our staff for quick introductions and a chance to ask questions. Registration packets may now be picked up at the Briggs Elementary School Office on school days between 8:00AM and 3:30 PM.  Parents/guardians of children who will be entering Kindergarten this fall are encouraged to call the Briggs Elementary School office (978-827-5750) or email Mrs. Pilsbury at to assure that their child is included on the list of incoming kindergarten students.

Enrollment packets may also be downloaded from the J.R. Briggs and Meetinghouse School websites.
