Round-Up introduces future Kindergarteners and parents to schools

The first day of kindergarten can bring excitement, joy and tears for both parents and students. Alief’s Kindergarten Round-Up helps ease that transition with information, campus tours, and other ways to prepare your future kindergartener for school. Kindergarten Round-Up 2023 will be Thursday, April 13, at 5 PM on all Alief elementary campuses.

Children who will be five years old by September 1 are eligible for kindergarten. Families can complete VIP on-site enrollment for their new Alief students at the Round-Up, as well as tour their campuses, introduce their children to the schools with fun activities, attend a parent orientation meeting, and get all their beginning-school questions answered.

Mari Martinez, Alief’s Early Childhood Coordinator, says families can benefit in many ways from attending Kindergarten Round-Up.

“…They can visit the school, tour the classrooms, meet the teachers and administrators, and for incoming students to get a feel for what Kindergarten will be like,” she said. “They’ll be able to participate in hands-on activities, see the playground, practice how to get on a school bus.”

“Parents will also learn about the instructional content their children will be learning about in Kindergarten. They’ll see sample schedules, receive information about spirit shirts, uniforms, materials, and other important information.”

Online registration for new students for the 2023-2024 school year is available here:

The form is the same for students new to Alief ISD and for students who did not attend Alief schools in 2022-2023.

Martinez said it will be helpful if families have started the registration process before the Round-Up, but assistance will be provided during the event.

“They should also visit our website ( for additional information provided about our program, as well as registration information.”

Martinez emphasized that future Kindergarteners are part of the registration process. The classroom tours, introductions to teachers and administrators, and practices with buses and procedures will help reduce the tears on the first day of school in August.

“Parents should also bring their incoming kindergarteners with them so they have an opportunity to get to know the campus and the teachers,” she said.
