Kindergarten Survey

We are thrilled to be partnering with you in fostering your child’s education. In order to help us plan for the first weeks of school, we need to gather information on the readiness of our incoming students. All TK and Kinder families must sign up for an appointment so that our Kindergarten teachers can meet with your child and conduct a brief survey of your child’s incoming skills. *Appoints will last 30 - 45 minutes. The information we gather helps us tailor our program to meet the individual needs of our students. Beginning this process prior to school also saves valuable instructional time at the beginning of the year.
