                                     End of The Year Assessments And Conferences!!!

 

To evaluate how much your child has grown, we will be doing the last series of assessments this month.  We use the Ages and Stages Questionnaire screening to track your child’s growth and development, along with our VPK children taking the last of three annual VPK assessments The combined assessments will give us a baseline evaluation of their physical, emotional, and cognitive growth.  We will use the results to guide our curriculum for those staying with us, and forward the results to future kindergartens for those ready to graduate!  Parent/Teacher Conferences will be held from Tues. May 23rd through Thurs. May 25th. Please be sure to sign up for a fifteen-minute time slot. Sign-up sheets will be posted in your child’s room. Conferences are mandatory for all VPK students.

 

 

We Will Be CLOSED on Mon, May 29th, 2017 in Observance of Memorial Day

 

Have a safe and fun long weekend with your family!

 

 

Graduation Is Upon Us!

How time flies!  VPK students will have a special graduation week planned to celebrate the transition from preschool to kindergarten!  The children will be practicing for our commencement ceremony during the week of May 30th. Graduation will be on Friday June 2nd. The ceremony is set for 12pm at St. Paul’s Church; invitations will be put in your child’s mailbox soon! Siblings and extended family are welcome to attend.  After the ceremony, children are asked to return to their classrooms one final time for pictures, to receive their formal diplomas, and collect their school work portfolios.

 

Please watch for all end-of-the-year class party information posted in your child’s classroom!

 

               Thank you for a Fantastic year!
