In preparation for your child’s entrance into kindergarten, the district’s 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, and should take approximately 45 minutes.
The screening will take place at Moriches Elementary, 16 Louis Ave., Moriches, on the following dates by appointment only:
- June 3 – 6 (4 pm – 7 pm)
- June 10 – 13 (4 pm – 7 pm)
- June 17 – 20 (4 pm – 7 pm)
- June 25 – 26 (1 pm – 4 pm)
- August 5 – 8 (8 am – 2 pm)
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, you do not need an appointment, as your child will be screened during the school day.
We are looking forward to working in partnership with you and watching your child grow socially, emotionally and academically!
