Welcome to AES 
titude + Effort = Success

Archbold Elementary houses grades K-4 along with our county run pre-school units.  We have four to five sections of each grade level with approximately 100 students per grade.  When staff and students walk through the doors of Archbold Elementary School, they automatically become members of the AES Club where Attitude + Effort =Success and we are Respectful, Responsible, and Safe!  It is our goal at Archbold Elementary to ensure every student finds SUCCESS!

2019-2020 Kindergarten

Archbold Kindergarten Registration 


Parents of children who will be five years old on or before August 1, 2019 are asked to bring the child’s birth certificate, immunization records, and proof of residency (i.e., utility bill or rental/lease agreement), and custody papers if applicable to the elementary office during one of these days.  Children do not have to be present for registration.  You will schedule an appointment for your child to be screened in March when you come in to register.


***We have switched to online registration forms.  You will need your email address and your password when coming in to register.  If you do not have an email address, we will help you set one up.**




Archbold Kindergarten Screening

Kindergarten screening will take place at the school March 11-12, 2019 Parents who register their children will be given a scheduled appointment for the kindergarten screening at the time the child is registered.  Please refer to the school district website at http://www.archbold.k12.oh.usfor more information or contact the school at 419-446-2727 if there are additional questions.  There will be no school for our current kindergarten students on March 11-12, 2019.


As the students enter the elementary this year, they will again be reminded that they are “official members” of the AES Club (Attitude + Effort = Success). They will also be reminded of what it means to be Respectful, Responsible and Safe in all areas of the school building and on the bus.  Throughout the year, we will once again be looking to “catch” those “Super Streaks” who go above and beyond in demonstrating a great attitude, extra effort, respect, responsibility, and safety!  This year, we will be focusing on a specific character trait each month and will recognize our Super Streaks who demonstrate this trait during an assembly on Super Streak Fridays.

Breakfast Program

At Archbold Elementary, breakfast will be served from 8:05-8:20 AM in the elementary cafeteria. All students need to report to their classrooms to sign in before going to breakfast.  The cost of breakfast is $1.50. 

Parking Lot Safety


In order to keep our students who are dropped off safe, we have a designated  “drop-off zone”.   The drop-off zone will be between the two cross walks in front of the school building. Students who are being dropped off will need to exit the car once it is in this zone in order to keep traffic flowing in the morning. Traffic cannot be backed up on Lafayette Street.  If needed, parents should enter and park in the lot or go to the third row in the parking lot to drop off students.  If dropping off in the third row, students should follow the footprints to the cross walk.



Walkers and students getting picked up will exit the main front doors. Parents picking up student(s) will need to park in the parking lot and come to the front of the school to pick up their student(s) and get them safely across the cross walk.  There will be no curb side pick-up allowed.

Please be patient as we try to keep our students safer. Thank you for your cooperation!

Arrival/Dismissal Time

Buses will be arriving at 8:05 AM to drop off the elementary students. Students who walk or are dropped off are asked to arrive between 8:00 AM - 8:15 AM. There will be no supervision of children prior to 8:00 AM. The tardy bell will ring at 8:20 AM as in the past.  Dismissal time will be 3:05 PM for walkers followed by bus riders.
