Welcome and Registration Center
Located west of Cholla Middle School at 3200 W. Cholla, parents can register their children for any of Washington Elementary School District's 32 schools.
The centralized location eliminates the need for families to go to each child's school to register. The Welcome and Registration Center offers extended daily hours, is open during select school breaks, and has a bilingual staff who provide individualized attention during the registration process.

Students Register at the School Office when:
- Students are new to WESD
- Students are coming from WESD Head Start or ECE KidSpace programs entering Kindergarten

Children must be 5 years old before September 1 to be registered for kindergarten. Children must turn 6 years old before September 1 to be registered for first grade.
