It's that time of year again when our staff will conduct screenings for both incoming Pre-K and Kindergarten students. For Pre-Kindergarten, we use our screenings to determine eligibility for our program or for the Gingerbread House program. Unfortunately, we cannot get every student into our programs because of the limited number of seats as required by state guidelines. For those who are not eligible, they will have an opportunity to be placed on a wait list in case students move out of our program.
For Kindergarten, we use our screenings to assess basic skills and provide our staff the opportunity to meet and interact with their incoming students. With both screenings, parents can receive feedback about their child's development, but no determinations for eligibility of services will be made that day.
Pre-K screenings are May 19-21. If you have not already scheduled an appointment, please contact Meghan Correll at 618-544-3153
Kindergarten screenings are May 27-30. To schedule an appointment for a Kindergarten screening, please contact the Washington Elementary School office at 544-2233.
If you have a Pre-K or Kindergarten aged student, we highly recommend that you call to schedule an appointment as soon as possible as we will not accept walk-ins.
For all children who will be 5 years old on or before September 1, 2014, Robinson CUSD #2 will be holding pre-registration beginning this Tuesday, March 25th from 8:30 AM to 2:00 PM, Wednesday, March 26th from 8:30 AM to 6: 00 PM, and Thursday, March 27 from 8:30 AM to 2:00 PM. Pre-Registration will be held at Washington Elementary School and no appointment is needed.
Please bring a certified copy of your child's birth certificate and their immunization record. We're sorry, a hospital copy of the birth certifcate will not work. You can get a certified copy at the County Cleark's office in the county your child was born.
During pre-registration, appointments will be made for Kindergarten Screenings which will be held in May. We will determine the number of sections of Kindergarten based on our number of registrants, so it's important to pre-register.
If you have any questions, please feel free to call the office at Washington Elementary at 618-544-2233.
Student's at Washington Elementary School had a chance to learn several facts about the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics. Staff posted information about the different events, its location and a medal count for the United States Olympic Team along our main hallway in the building. Shown here are student's collecting information about the Winter Olympics to share in their classroom writing. I would like to thank our staff for posting and updating information regarding these Winter Olympics.
Washington Elementary School students worked hard during the months of December and Janaury to learn the fourth Leader in Me habit - Think Win-Win. Our students completed chores at home to earn spare change and then donated their "pay" to the Feed My Starving Children charity. Feed My Starving Children will be holding a mobile packing event at Lincoln Trail College on April 12 and 13. Our students raised $800. With each meal costing just 22 cents, our students were able to purchase 3636 meals.
Our students deserve a big round of applause for their efforts. If you or your child would like to help this organization or would like to help with the packing event at LTC in April, please contact Julie Brooks at 618-599-0582.
