Kindergarten Registration

Kindergarten Registration:  If you have a child that will be five years of age on or before September 30, please call the K-2 office during the month of March to register for Kindergarten at (419)785-2260.  Defiance City Schools offers two kindergarten aged programs, KinderStart (early five program) and regular kindergarten.  Students must meet the age requirement for both programs.


Our registration will run throughout the month of March with the actual screening taking place the week of April 11.  Parents with students currently enrolled in our KinderStart program will NOT need to register or go through the screening process again.  Our KS students will automatically be placed in a regular kindergarten classroom next school year.

Also, this plan is subject to change at any time, and will be communicated as soon as humanly possible.* 


We appreciate your cooperation and understanding.

DHS Holiday Choir Concert
DHS Holiday Choir Concert

The DHS Choir is pleased to present their annual Holiday Concert under the direction of Mr. Eric West and accompanied by Mrs. Lori Schultz.  Although this concert is not the traditional event we come to know, this project showcases how awesome the DHS students are and how hard they have been working during this challenging time. The songs were recorded together while wearing masks and being social distanced in the choir room.  Then students recorded video of themselves singing the songs while at home.  Using technology, the beautiful voices and videos were compiled together.  Prepare to be amazed by clicking here for the performance.
