Dear Parents:We are in the process of planning for next year's kindergarten classes. If you have a child who will be five (5) years old on or before September 10, 2020, please connect to and fill out the registration form linked below. Also, if you know of a child who will be an eligible kindergarten student, please share this information with his/her parents. Extra registration forms are available by calling 227-7770.
Kindergarten screening will be held on Monday & Tuesday, June 8th & 9th at Eastgate Elementary School for all incoming kindergarteners in the district. This should not be viewed as an "entrance exam", in that all age-eligible children are welcome. Rather, it is a community service that serves the following purposes:
• To complete an individual assessment for each child;
• To identify any special needs and prepare for early intervention;
• To provide parents with information that might aid them in their decision about kindergarten readiness for their child;
• To obtain pertinent information for school records and eliminate confusion when school starts; and
• To derive an enrollment projection so we might plan for appropriate class size in each of our kindergarten classrooms.
Eastgate provides full-day kindergarten classes.
You will need a certified copy of your child's birth certificate, proof of residency and immunization record for screening. We recommend you update immunizations prior to screening. Doctor appointments are difficult to schedule in the fall.
Parents need to pre-register their children by completing the registration form through the link below. Registration will be accepted beginning January 2, 2020. Screening times for you and your child will be scheduled at Parents Meeting May 21st. The screening process takes 30-60 minutes. Parents unable to attend the informational meeting will be contacted to set up a screening time. During the screening process, a large number of children go through screening at the same time, it's imperative that we keep noise and distractions at a minimum. If other children will be accompanying you and your kindergartener to the screening, we ask that they remain as quiet as possible. We look forward to meeting you and your future kindergarteners.
The informational meeting for parents of incoming kindergartners is scheduled for Thursday, May 21, 2020, at 6:30 pm at Eastgate. Information about kindergarten at Eastgate will be presented and screening times assigned. We hope you will be able to attend!
