    Kindergarten Enrollment - 2021-22 School Year-


    A big welcome to our incoming Kindergarten students and families! Each January, Paden Elementary School, along with other elementary schools in Alameda Unified School District, hold a series of events to inform families about the enrollment process, and to get to know each school.  This year due to COVID-19 restrictions, all events will be conducted virtually or electronically. Below are some important dates for each of these events.

    Kindergarten Information Night - Thursday, January 14th, 2021:  

    Paden Elementary  School will hold Kindergarten Information Night on Thursday, January 14, 2021, from 6:30 – 7:30 PM.  This will be an evening for parents to hear about the Kindergarten program at Paden, receive information about the enrollment process for AUSD, and meet Kindergarten teachers and other staff.  We encourage new families to Paden to attend this important first event in getting to know our school.   We also request families to complete the Kindergarten Information Night Google Form, prior to or during this event, so we can gather contact and other pertinent information for you and your child.

    Here is the Zoom Link to attend this event: Paden Kindergarten Information Night Zoom Link

    More information:

    More information about Kindergarten enrollment, including further details for the above events, can be found on the AUSD website.


    Starting in the 2020-2021 school year, Paden will be using the ParentSquare website and app (Apple; Android) for all communication. 

    Using ParentSquare will ensure you have the most up to date information about what is happening with the school, your child's classroom, and with the PTA.

    Use "Sign Up/Create Password" field - if it doesn't work, you are using an email that Paden does not have on record, and you will be presented with a form to fill out requesting access. These go to district office and they will work with you to get the account activated. 

    Back to school DATA CONFIRMATION

    IMPORTANT: Student Data Confirmation will be available through the Aeries Family Portal. If you are new user, you should receive an email or letter from AUSD with a temporary password and instructions to set up an account. 

    Before August 27, please update your student's information in Aeries and read documentation on the AUSD Back to School Data Confirmation page, including the Parent Handbook. Make sure your student is up to date or complete with immunizations and an oral exam. Data Confirmation needs to be completed and forms need to be received (if applicable) before your student can begin school!
