Get excited for pre-K
“School registration is so much fun,” said no one ever.
But they will tomorrow, April 30.
That’s when Arlington ISD is hosting an in-person registration event for pre-K that will look more like a carnival than a typical enrollment event.
The event at McNutt Elementary, from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. on Saturday, April 30, is open to any family interested in signing up for Arlington ISD’s best-in-class pre-K for 3- and 4-year-olds. Of course, there will be support from Arlington ISD employees to help with registration, along with resources and information from other district departments and community partners.
All of that is good. But then there is the fun!
Train rides, obstacle courses and games for pre-K-aged kids! A photo booth, prizes and giveaways. Plus, free snow cones for the first 200 to register. What better way to get your child excited to start school!
“This will be the perfect event to enroll your 3- or 4-year-old child before summer starts,” said early childhood director Dr. Jackeline Orsini. “Arlington ISD will assist all families with the pre-K registration process while kids enjoy all the free things and events that we have planned for our future pre-K students.”
Arlington ISD’s pre-K has always been great, but it’s going to be even better next school year. That’s because it will be free for all 4-year-olds! Plus, the play-based curriculum will incorporate more STEM. It’s Full STEM Ahead! with science, technology, engineering and math!

Día De Pre-K
Make Saturday, April 30, a full day of fun with the City of Arlington’s El Día De Los Niños.
After the Arlington ISD’s pre-K event at McNutt, you can head over to the East Library and Recreation Center (1817 New York Ave.) for more fun activities from noon until 3 p.m. They will have crafts, music, the Bubble Bus, fire trucks, an imagination playground, multilingual storytimes, performers and free books.
The goal of the event is to encourage children from all cultural backgrounds to come together for some family-friendly fun. Learn more.
