Kindergarten Screening is a special time for your in-coming kindergartener. This screener gives teacher information about what your student "knows" before entering kindergarten. It's about a 20 minute window where the student will meet one on one with a kindergarten teacher. 
Time slots are available every 30 minutes on MAY 3rd from 8-1:30. (If you can't attend May 3rd- limited time slots are available during the week of May 2nd)
