How can I register my child for the school year?

The Howard & Suamico 4K program is an optional, one half day – four day per week preschool program, which prepares four-year-olds for school success. An abundance of research supports the value of four-year-old kindergarten for children. The Howard & Suamico 4K is accomplished through a collaborative community approach where programming takes place at many community preschool sites in both villages.  All classes are taught by Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction licensed teachers and the program is supervised by the Howard-Suamico School District.
