Welcome to Kindergarten Future I-SS Graduate!

Dear Parents of a Future Iredell-Statesville Schools Graduate:

What an exciting time for you and your child.  Your child is going to begin a journey that will continue for the next 13 years.  In that time your child will learn how to read, write, count, sing, draw, play, problem solve, and make lifetime friends. 

I would like to personally welcome you to the Iredell-Statesville School District Family.  My name is Jonathan Ribbeck and I am the Director of our Elementary Schools.  As the Elementary Director, it is my job to ensure your child is cared for and receives the best education possible.  I am also available to answer questions and provide support to you and your child throughout this exciting journey.  I currently have two children in the Iredell-Statesville Schools System and they continue to receive a high quality education.  I can remember Kindergarten being one of the best years of their lives as they couldn’t wait to go to school each day and learn with their classmates.  I know your child will have the same memorable experiences as my children.

We want to be sure enrolling your child in Kindergarten is an easy process.  We are fortunate that each elementary school has a Data Manager who will be leading you along the way.  You can enroll during a school’s Kindergarten Registration or any other time that will work for you.  Each school is dedicated to making you feel welcome and a part of their family.

I can’t tell you how excited I am to meet our new Iredell-Statesville Schools future graduates.  I am looking forward to seeing the amazing things our future Kindergartners will accomplish.  Please do not hesitate to contact me at any point with questions you may have.
