In preparation for your child’s entrance into kindergarten, our elementary team will be conducting a screening as part of NYS Commissioner’s Regulations. The purpose of the screening is to identify your child’s strengths, and to provide important information to guide his/her unique kindergarten experience. This screening will consist of exercises that determine basic academic skills, motor skills and oral language.
The screening will take place at Nathaniel Woodhull Elementary on the following dates by appointment only:
June 4 – 7 (4-7 pm)
- June 11 – 15 (4-7 pm)
- June 26 – 29 (8 am – 1pm)
- August 6 – 9 (8am – 1pm)
Please visit the following link to schedule your child’s kindergarten screening appointment: http://signup.com/go/sThtpdm. You will be prompted to enter in information about your child and select a time for screening that works best for you and your family. If you are unable to schedule your appointment online please call Arlene Oldham at 631-874-1132, or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you get a voicemail, please leave a message with your name and phone number and your call will be returned. If your child is currently enrolled in Just Kids within one of the elementary buildings they will be screened before the end of the school year, so you do not have to make an appointment. Please complete the Parent Questionnaire that was mailed to you and bring it with you to the screening appointment or send it in with your child to their Just Kids teacher.
We are looking forward to working in partnership with you and watching your child grow socially, emotionally and academically!
