  • Kindergarten Enrollment for next school-year, 2019-2020, has now begun! 

    We are excited to offer online registration for our families who will have a Kindergartner joining us August 2019. If you currently live in the school district of Carl Junction (official proof of residency will be required later in the process), and your child will be 5 years old on or before July 31, 2019, please complete the online registration now.

    You will enroll using the Parent Portal. The process is different for each family dependent on your current status. Here are the explanations and instruction page for each situation:

    Brand New Families - Welcome!

    • The new Kindergarten Student is your only child to ever be enrolled into Carl Junction Schools and this child has not attended CJ Preschool  Instruction Page

    Existing CJ Preschoolers

    • The new Kindergarten Student is currently attending Carl Junction Schools for Preschool (Early Childhood) Instruction Page

    Existing Families (Siblings/Other Household Children Currently Enrolled)

    • The new Kindergarten Student has NOT attended Carl Junction Preschool (Early Childhood) but there are other children in the household that currently attend Carl Junction Schools  Instruction Page

    Families who have had children enrolled in Carl Junction Schools or Preschool in the past, but have withdrawn them, will not be able to enroll a Kindergartner using these methods. Please call us at 417-649-5755 for additional options.

    After the Online Registration is complete, you will receive a notice by mail of further required screening and enrollment steps. Please call 417-649-5755 or 417-649-7045 if you have any questions.

  • Welcome to Early Childhood and Primary K-1!

    We look forward to working with your child and family during the ‘18-‘19 school year. 

    Our vision is to create a warm, creative, welcoming, and safe environment where parents and staff can help students become productive, responsible, and respectful citizens (Bulldogs).  In order to do so, we must implement school-wide expectations, reinforce traditions, celebrate successes, and lay a foundation for the future.

    We also strive to ensure the youngest students of the district experience a positive and successful start toward the district’s educational goals, with every effort made to utilize instructional practices that are developmentally appropriate for young students.

    A strong network of supportive families and a thriving community make CJ Early Childhood/Primary K-1 a wonderful place to learn, grow, visit, and work!
