What to expect
The purpose of a kindergarten screening is to determine if your child is developmentally ready for kindergarten and if they can benefit from additional support. These screenings can also be a great way to help your child become familiar with the school and our staff. The screening usually evaluates your child’s language development, cognitive skills, gross motor skills, and fine motor skills.

When you bring in the original proof of birth to the Elementary School main office, your student will be scheduled for an appointment during one of the following screening times:
- April 23-25 (Monday-Tuesday) between 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
