Dear Incoming Kindergarten Families,

A personalized email went out to all incoming K families this afternoon with a screening date and time. Please contact me if you have not received this message via email at backerman@smithfield-ps.org

Kindergarten Screening assists us in gathering pertinent information about your child’s learning styles, social/emotional/academic strengths, and instructional focus areas using recent student data. From this information, we will build kindergarten our class lists.

The screening process is as follows:

  • Screenings will be held on Tuesday, August 27th; Wednesday, August 28th and Thursday, August 29th.  

  • Screening groups will include 6-10 students

  • Screenings will take place at William Winsor Elementary School.

  • Students will have an opportunity to see both Kindergarten classrooms during the screening process.

  • Building-based Kindergarten Teachers, Speech/Language Therapists and Reading Teachers will assist with the screening.

  • Screening teams will review results, and create balanced classes based on the screening results.

  • Parents will receive notification of their child’s teacher by the end of the day, Thursday, August 29th.

  • The first day of school for Kindergarten will be Friday, August 30th. 

We look forward to welcoming our new students and families!
