Screenings for preschool, kindergarten set for April 6, 7

The annual Kindergarten Round-Up at Purdy Elementary School, an informational open house for parents of next year’s kindergarten students, will be held from 4 to 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 30.

The event will be held at the west elementary entrance. Parents and their children are encouraged to attend this event, which will provide useful information for parents and an opportunity to meet kindergarten staff members.

According to a statement released by the school, parents at that time may also pick up enrollment paperwork and summer school information and make appointments for their kindergarten child’s screening. Children attending Purdy preschool will not be screened for kindergarten, but must complete all enrollment forms.

Both preschool and kindergarten screenings will be held during the school day, by appointment only, on Thursday and Friday, April 6 and 7. Parents of next year’s preschool students may call Julie Ball at 417-442-9087 to schedule a screening. Parents of next year’s kindergarten students who are unable to attend the Kindergarten Round-Up on March 30 may call Kimberly Utter at 417-442-3216, ext. 1, to schedule a screening, beginning on Friday, March 31. Kindergarten screenings will not be scheduled over the phone until after the Kindergarten Round-Up. Attendees will get first choice of screening appointments.
