Dear Kindergarten Parents/Guardians,

 

We are very excited about the upcoming school year and the beginning of your child’s school career. We are totally committed to your child’s educational success and are looking forward to working with him/her! We would like a little more information about our new kindergarten students so that we can begin meeting them where they are academically, and moving them forward within the first week of school. In order to do this, we would like to do some student assessment on Thursday, August 23rd from 8:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. The testing appointments will take about 15 minutes per child and will require parents/guardians to remain at school for that short period of time.  We realize that this may not fit into your summer schedule and not all of our students will be able to be tested.  However, assessing some of our students before school begins will give us a better idea of where our students are in pre-reading/writing skills and will allow us to “hit the ground running” for many of our students. And of course, our goal will be to have every child assessed within the first two weeks of school.

It is our hope that you will consider scheduling an appointment for your child. We have set up a scheduling website at:

for you to schedule your appointment.  Please know that we are setting up our own scheduling through this website and not through the school office. Our office staff will be unable to tell you the time slot that you signed up for due to still being on summer break. You will have to return to the website or check your email for the reminder that will be emailed to you two days prior to your appointment. Thank you for your help! We look forward to seeing you and your child in August!

 

Sincerely,

Roosevelt Kindergarten Team
