Kindergarten Registration--January 25-28, 2016

Do you have a child who will be coming to Kindergarten in the Fall? Do you know of a Smithfield family who has a Kindergarten age child? If so, kindergarten registration will take place at all Smithfield Elementary Schools from January 25 through 28. If your home school is LaPerche, please call Mrs. Bazinet at 231-6652 to schedule an appointment. Thank you for helping us spread the word.

Raymond C. LaPerche Elementary School is one of four elementary schools in the Smithfield Public School system. Our school is dedicated to Raymond C. LaPerche, a former teacher, principal and superintendent in the Smithfield Public Schools for 41 years. LaPerche first opened its doors in 1968 and presently serves students in kindergarten to grade five.
