Kindergarten Screening

We will begin assessment of our Kindergarten students on Tuesday, July 26, and Wednesday, July 27, between the hours of 9:00 am and 1:00 pm. The information obtained from this initial assessment will help us learn more about your child.  Each student will be tested individually, taking approximately 20-25 minutes to complete.

Please bring your child to school on the date listed below between 9:00-1:00 (floating):

Last Name begins with A-M – July 26

Last Name begins with N-Z – July 27

If this date isn’t convenient, simply switch to the other day – no need to call to reschedule.  You will be provided an area to wait and complete some simple paperwork while your child is being assessed.

All Kindergarten teacher assignments will be made after screening is completed and mailed to parents on August 4.
