Registration for kindergarten students for the 2023-2024 school year will begin at each P-H-M elementary school on Tuesday, January 17, 2023.
This registration opportunity is for youngsters who live within the P-H-M district and who will be five-years-old on or before September 1, 2023. A parent or guardian must register their child.
Penn-Harris-Madison has 11 elementary schools, each offering full-day kindergarten. You may use the interactive Google based District Map and the 2021 P-H-M Street Guide to verify which elementary school serves your neighborhood.
We look forward to welcoming the Class of 2036!

Each child entering kindergarten at P-H-M must complete a Registration Packet and is also encouraged to have a physical exam and a dental exam completed before entering kindergarten.

The packet includes the Registration Form, Home Language Survey Form and the Transportation Add/Change/Withdrawal Form. In addition to the forms, you will also need to submit the child’s birth certificate, immunization records and 2 proofs of your Indiana residence (current mortgage/lease statement and a current utility bill).

Here are two other important pieces of information for parents of incoming kindergartners:
Immunization Requirements - Immunizations are used to protect your children against certain diseases as well as other children in the school. Under Indiana Public Law, when a child enrolls in school his/her parent/guardian is required to furnish written proof that a child is fully immunized as required by the Indiana State Department of Health. Immunization paperwork must be submitted to your school office before the first day of school. Immunizations may be obtained from your family doctor, St. Joseph County Health Department, or other area clinics. Please call your school health office for resources.
Saint Joseph Regional Medical Center Letter – The schools’ onsite healthcare services are provided by trained SJRMC personnel, who are prepared to help you with medical concerns and questions about medications at school.

RESIDENT STUDENTS WHO WISH TO CHANGE SCHOOLS
- Any student who is a resident of the district and wishes to attend a P-H-M school other than his/her home school, must complete and submit an internal transfer request form. The transfer request form is available here. Incoming kindergarten students must first enroll at their home schools before submitting an internal transfer request for a different school. While admission to a child’s home school is assured, transfer placement is not. Approval is based on the number of requests received and the space available. Transfer decisions will be announced later in the spring.
