At M.G. Ellis, we believe a child's education is best achieved when there is a strong partnerhip between home and school and we encourage parents to be actively involved in their child's education. When schools and parents work together, there is no limit to what a child can do! M.G. Ellis is the only primary school in FWISD to serve only Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten students. This distinction allows our school staff to specialize in early childhood education and equips us to meet the academic and social-emotional needs of young learners.
REGISTRATION FOR NEW PRE-K AND KINDERGARTEN STUDENTS
Families, the Fort Worth ISD is making it easier for you to enroll your child for Pre-K and Kindergarten. Backing up its belief that “Your Child Belongs Here,” the District is providing streamlined online registration and requiring fewer documents during enrollment. The District’s Pre-K program is free of charge, and there’s enough room for every child. Children attend school each day in classrooms that are nurturing, safe spaces that inspire discovery and learning.
Pre-K and Kindergarten teachers in Fort Worth ISD have earned their state certification. Pre-K teachers receive an extra 30 hours of training each year and Kindergarten teachers receive 16 additional hours of training annually. This additional training equips teachers with the latest tools to give young students the right balance of structure and play in their education. Our teachers focus on literacy, math, social interactions and other skills to help children successfully navigate the academic path that lies ahead.
Research shows young children who have positive early learning experiences are better equipped to develop the cognitive, social, physical, and emotional skills they will need throughout elementary and secondary school.

REGISTRATION FOR KINDERGARTEN STUDENTS WHO ATTENDED A FWISD SCHOOL LAST YEAR
You will need your child's Snapcode to complete registration for returning students. (The Snapcode is a 15-digit code you will need to update your Returning Student form.) You can find the Snapcode on your child’s last report card, in Parent Portal, or call the Parent Information Line at 817-814-2070. The process for returning students is fast and should take from five to ten minutes. Using your student’s individual Snapcode, confirm the information you’ve previously supplied or update any new information.
