Westside schools: Kindergarten registration to begin

       Parents are reminded that registration for preschool or kindergarten at District 11 schools for the 2006-07 school year begins Friday, April 14.
       If you're not sure what attendance area you're in, contact the school nearest you and inquire there. District 11 is also a “choice” district, so parents can enroll their children at any school, as long as there is space and they are willing to provide transportation.
       Here are the Westside's District 11 elementaries:
       Bristol, 890 N. Walnut St., 328-4000.
       Buena Vista, 1620 W. Bijou St., 328-4100.

       Ken Lippincott of Coronado High has been announced as his school's winner of the Diamond Award for teaching excellence. Nominations come from students, with the awards made by the Rotary Club of Colorado Springs.
