Welcome to Congdon Park's Kindergarten Round-up!
The dates for our next KG Round-up: Thursday, March 17th 4:30 pm to 6:30 Friday, March 18, 2016 8:00 am -11:30 am
Here's how information is received at Congdon regarding your Kindergartener:
Congdon Park receives a list from Early Childhood Screening** of incoming Congdon Park KG students who have completed pre-school screening. From this information, we send out a' Save the Date' postcard, a mailing of information (near the end of February), and a reminder postcard letting you know we're excited to see you and your child(ren).
**All children beginning school are required to complete pre-school screening. The last day for EC Screening is generally the end of April, so call as soon as possible to make your appointment.
As an FYI, Early Childhood Screening is a health and developmental screening that is required by the State of Minnesota for all children before entering kindergarten. State law recommends that screening is completed during the year the child is three. It includes immunization records review, height, and weight measurement, hearing and vision screening and standardized developmental screening of speech, language, concepts and motor skills and social/emotional development. Results are summarized during a parent interview. Early Childhood Screening identifies, at an early age, possible health or learning concerns, so that children can get help before starting school. Free screenings are offered throughout the school year by appointment. If you haven’t done so already, please call 218-336-8816 or e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an Early Childhood Screening appointment.
