Once you have registered your child, you will be assigned a kindergarten screening date that will be held during the week of April 20th. At screening, your child will be given a short academic, speech and health screening. Parents will be provided with helpful information about kindergarten, will be able to ask questions, and visit the school with their child.
Screening is vital for families to get information about how kindergarten has changed over the years, learn about our district, and hear about a typical day in kindergarten. We will also gain information about your child that will help us place them in the perfect kindergarten classroom.
At screening, students will have the opportunity to get on a school bus and learn about bus safety. They will also receive a pencil, magnetic dry erase board and marker, magnetic letters, crayons, scissors, a book about manners at school, and a Wee Wave drawstring bag to keep everything tidy. Parents will learn how to use these materials with the students to provide the best start to school curriculum.
Please register your child early so that they can be included in the screening process. This will help us with providing an exceptional school experience for you and your child.
Documents needed to complete the registration include: official birth certificate, immunization records, two documents for proof of residency (something with a mailing address included,) parent or guardian photo ID, and custody papers if applicable.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call Mrs. Harter, Elementary Principal, at 548-3185.
