Registration for 2024-25 Academic Year
Registration for the 2024-25 academic year will open next Wednesday, Jan. 24. Families will receive an email reminder with additional instructions this coming Monday (Jan. 22). For returning students, visit the PowerSchool Parent Portal, click on the registration link, and follow the instructions. For students who will be new to D39, visit wilmette39.org/enroll for instructions on the new student registration process. We encourage parents with new kindergarten students to enroll as quickly as possible. Additionally, D39 is offering its KEEP39 afternoon enrichment program for kindergarten students. You can register your child for KEEP39 at the same time that you register for kindergarten. Registration for the Lechner Early Education Program (LEEP) for three- and four-year-old students will also open at this time.
