Kindergarten at TPES

We still have a few kindergarten packets left at the library. You need these forms if your child will be entering kindergarten in a Montgomery County school.

But today the Takoma Park Elementary School staff was able to return to their building, so you can now get information directly from them.

The number is 301.650.6414.
