Kindergarten Assessment Days and Early Release
June 5, 2019
Dear Kindergarten Families,
We are excited for your child to begin his/her educational years at our school this coming August. In order for our Kindergarten teachers to better know your child academically, we will be dismissing Kindergarten students early on the first three days of schools. Dismissal for Kindergarten students on August 5-7, 2019 will be at 12:20 pm. Transportation at dismissal time on August 5-7 is the responsibility of the family.
Kindergarten teachers will spend the three afternoons individually assessing children on Kindergarten reading and math concepts. The individual assessments allows a teacher an accurate indication of a child’s abilities and knowledge. The results of these assessments will support your child’s teacher to differentiate learning and be able to meet his/her individual needs during the school year.
Your child will be assessed after 12:20 on one of the early dismissal days. Please see school site details below.
Students who are not staying for assessments will be escorted to room 603, the ECS Community Room located right beside the office. Parents will be permitted to pick their child up in Room 603 at 12:20 pm. The assessment schedule is based upon your child’s last name. Students with last names that begin with the letter A through the letter I will stay on Monday, August 5. Students with last names that begin with J through M will stay on Tuesday, August 6. Students with last names that begin with N through Z will stay on Wednesday, August 7. If you are unable to pick up your child on their non-testing days, please notify the school. ALL Kinder students need to come to school each day in the mornings of Aug. 5-7th.
Again, we look forward to welcoming your child to our school in August and are excited to get to know him/her on a one-to-one basis during the first three days of school on August 5-7, 2019.
