Developmental screening:

An appointment will be set up in the spring when a series of tests will be given to your child. The areas screened will be Language Arts and Math. The screening program will not exclude any child from school that is of legal age, however, it will help parents make informed decisions about their child’s school career. It is important to register your child during these dates so that we can plan classes for the fall. Thank you.
