5 Year-Old Kindergarten

Congratulations on having an incoming kindergarten student in the 2017-2018 school year. We are thrilled to welcome your family into our schools. Your child’s Sun Prairie 5-year old kindergarten is a full day program located in one of our seven elementary schools: C.H. Bird Elementary, Creekside Elementary, Eastside Elementary, Horizon Elementary, Northside Elementary, Royal Oaks Elementary and Westside Elementary.

To find which elementary school your child will attend, click on this interactive map to help determine the attendance area and busing eligibility for your address or visit the busing and transportation webpage.

If your child attended SP4K and your address has changed or if you do not plan to have your child attend our elementary school for any reason, please contact Tracy Reuter, 4K Secretary at 608-834-6672.

If your child has a special health condition that requires more care or if you would like to talk to our District Health Nurse about health related questions, please call Debbie Brown at 608-834-6583.

Over the next several months between now and the start of the 2017-2018 school year you will receive more  information about your school, ways to get to know your school better, and about how to be ready for the start of kindergarten.  Watch for the following information:



  • Information about student health, immunizations and health forms needed

  • Summer School registration information for all incoming kindergarten students


  • Information about August Read and Greet meetings for incoming kindergarten students and their parent/guardian

  • 2017-2018 Calendar-At-a-Glance


  • Booklet on Preparing for Kindergarten

  • 2017-2018 School Supplies List


We look forward to serving you!

 Enrollment Information:                

The Sun Prairie Area School District has simplified the process for enrolling 4K students into 5K for the next school year.  Students already in SP4K will automatically be enrolled in 5K at the assigned elementary school based on the current home address.  Families who are Open Enrolled into an SP4K program will be contacted by our Business Office about plans for 2017-18.

In January, families will receive a welcome letter from your assigned elementary school.  At that time, if there are any updates in your address or changes in your plans for 5K, the letter will include information about who to contact.

If your child currently does not attend a Sun Prairie 4K site, enrollment begins online on Monday, January 23rd.

Please call the 4K office at 834-6672 if you have questions.

Request for early entrance to kindergarten must be submitted in writing to Rick Mueller by March 1, 2017. Questions about that process should be directed to Kristy Thao at 608-834-6566 or kythao@sunprairieschools.org.
