        A process that used to involve many pages of forms has now become much more streamlined. Thanks in large part to the work of River Heights administrative secretary, Laurie Szymanski, parents can now register their children for junior kindergarten at the Hamilton Road public school online.
        “We’re a good team,” said principal, Joe Sheik. “We have a good time,” said Szymanski of personalizing the new Thames Valley District School Board website. “It’s fun to play around with this.”
        The notice about online registration pops up when visiting the school website (unless there’s an urgent message about something like a snow day), or it’s accessible through the link:
        Online registration continues until this Friday, February 8. Parents can refer back to the page for valuable information, including details about the JK orientation session in May. About 70 children will be registered in kindergarten for the next school year, which rivals some of the large schools in London.
        “This is all Mrs. Szymanski” Sheik said proudly. She took the lead and started figuring things out. A couple of other secretaries are following suit.
        Parents do have the option to register at the school if they prefer.
