Registration, Screening & Medical Records

All children registering for Kindergarten are required to attend a Kindergarten Screening to be held on Friday, June 3 and Monday, June 5, 2017. This screening is mandatory and must be done before your child will be put on our eligibility list.

All children must register prior to attending screening. They must be five by September 30th of the current year and provide a copy of their birth certificate. All children registering for Kindergarten must pass a Kindergarten screening before being eligible to attend our program.

Children are eligible for early entrance testing if they are five before the first day of January. Testing will be administered by the local public school district’s psychologist, who will determine eligibility for early admission.

Our Kindergarten Program

Kindergarten provides an organized transition from home and pre-school activities into a formalized school setting. Genuine care for the individual and the development of the child socially and academically is at the heart of our program. The same philosophy and school policies which apply to all students at SGCS apply to Kindergarten.

Kindergarten is a full day program from 8:05 a.m. – 2:40 p.m.

Clothing

Special Days

Birthdays and holidays are special to all children. A treat may be sent for birthdays, but please let the teacher know in advance. School classroom activities for holidays always need an extra hand. Room parents assist the teachers during these special times. Volunteers must complete VIRTUS training and the required background check.
