Early Childhood Screening & Kindergarten Roundup

 Stanley County Elementary will be holding its Kindergarten Round-up on March 5-6, 2015, at the elementary school.  Please call to schedule an appointment for your child.  Sessions will be scheduled the evening of March 5 and the morning of March 6.

Kindergarten Round-up is designed for children who will be five years old prior to September 1, 2015, and who live in Stanley County or are interested in attending Stanley County Elementary.  During the round-up, children will go through a screening process to determine their readiness for kindergarten. 

This screening process is very important not only for your child but for the school as well.  The school will also need a copy of your child’s certified birth certificate and immunization records; bringing these to your round-up appointment would be greatly appreciated.  Please call Krista Kerns in the elementary office at 223-7745 ext. 301 to set up your appointment.

If your child is currently attending Stanley County’s junior kindergarten program, there is not a need to attend the round-up.

Elementary "Superheroes" Family Night

Mark your calendars! Join us on Monday, March 16, 2015 for our second annual SUPER elementary family night from 6:30 PM-8:00 PM.  We had a great time last year and hope you will join us again for an evening of fun.  Learn and play interactive math and reading activities with your family, friends, and community. This is a great opportunity for Stanley County families to participate in what your child is learning at school and have fun with it at home. Each student will leave with activities and a free book. The night will include a book showcase, book walk, estimation station, DOOR PRIZES, a special guest, and your favorite super heroes will be running the events. The Scholastic Book Fair will also be here throughout the week.  We hope to see you there!  Stay tuned for more information as the date approaches.
