Register for Kindergarten by June 1 is an outreach campaign to encourage and support parents to register their child before school offices close for the summer. The campaign primarily focuses on connecting and partnering with people and organizations who work with families with young children.

This campaign is an integral piece of the community’s larger collective effort to improve educational outcomes for all children and youth from cradle to career—the​ All Hands Raised Partnership (link is external).  The SUN Service System and Early Learning Multnomah collaborate across sectors with early childhood services, health care providers, DHS, culturally specific organizations, and school districts to communicate the importance of registering by June 1.

With the support of Health Share and FamilyCare, the campaign is now expanding to Clackamas and Washington counties. We are working with our partners at the Clackamas Early Learning Hub and Early Learning Washington County to spread the message about the importance of early registration to more families across our region.
