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.

Geography Bee Winner

Cheyenne school eighth grader Mattie J. won the school competition of the National Geographic Bee and a chance at a $50,000 college scholarship.  The school Bee, at which students answered questions of geography, was the first round in the 27th annual
National Geographic Bee.
Mattie’s next step was to take a written test; up to 100 of the top scorers on that test will then be eligible to compete in the state bee on March 27, 2015.
The state winner will have an all-expenses paid trip to Washington, D.C., to compete in the championship rounds May 11-13.  The first place winner will receive a $50,000 scholarship, lifetime membership in the Society, and a trip to the Galapagos Islands.
We wish Mattie the best of luck!
