Each kindergarten student is asked to go to Firelands Elementary for a one-hour appointment before the first full day of school to complete the Kindergarten Readiness Assessment. All kindergarten students must come for a KRA appointment with their teacher before school starts. This is in addition to the Kindergarten Screening that took place in May. This Ohio Department of Education assessment tool measures your child’s knowledge and abilities in six areas: social skills, language and literacy, mathematics, science, social studies, physical well-being, and motor development. Your child will also have the opportunity to get to know his/her teacher and become acquainted with the classroom environment.
***After receiving the letter in the mail informing you of who your child’s kindergarten teacher is, please click here to sign your child up for this one-hour appointment on either Tuesday, September 6; Wednesday, September 7; or Thursday, September 8. Please be sure to sign up for a time slot next to your child’s teacher’s name. For example, if your child is in Mrs. Cantu’s class, please sign up for a time slot that says “CANTU student”. Adults are welcome to wait in the school office and complete a welcome packet or stay in your car and return inside the school at the end of the appointment time.
If you are unable to sign up for this appointment electronically, please email Valerie Schuster by July 1st at [email protected]
or leave a voicemail at 440.965.5381 x2503. It is important that you leave the voicemail on extension 2503. You will receive a call back within a week to schedule the appointment.
All kindergarten students will attend their first full day of school on Friday, September 9th.
