Dorothy Lambert, Archbold elementary principal, said as of Monday, March 15, 79 students were signed up to attend kindergarten next school year.
In her report to the Archbold School Board presented during its Monday, March 15 meeting, Lambert said the current sign-up compares to 73 students registered at the same time last year.
“I think we’ll have a nicesized kindergarten class next year,” Lambert said.
Students who have registered will attend kindergarten screening, Monday and Tuesday, March 22-23.

Royal Short reported that the junior class has been preparing for the prom.
Juniors worked AHS concession stands and held fundraisers to raise money for the event. The junior class prom committee has been meeting to plan the menu and theme, and junior class parents have been planning the after prom.
Short said walk-ins will be held at the high school at 5:30 pm, Saturday, May 1, and then prom starts at the Archbold Knights of Columbus Rebeau Hall at 6:30 pm. The after-prom is at the high school.
“This year’s activities will look a little different, but both the prom and afterprom planning committees are committed to providing the best event possible under the current conditions,” Short said.
