STEP 3: SCHEDULE KINDERGARTEN SCREENING APPOINTMENT

Students applying for admission to Kindergarten must participate in a readiness screening.
Our regularly scheduled Kindergarten readiness screening will be held by appointment on March 30 and 31, 2023.

Please click here to schedule your child’s Kindergarten Screening appointment.

It is to your advantage to have your child participate in this specially designed session, as it provides valuable,
timely information about your child’s readiness to attend our full-day program to help you plan appropriately.
Additionally, the process of Kindergarten orientation is planned to follow this session in the spring.

Screening in the summer is not recommended if it can be avoided,
as it creates a rushed situation for the child, parents and school.
Please allow approximately 90 minutes for screening.  Additional information will be provided.

Kindergarten students should be registered by February 3, 2023
to be included in Kindergarten Screening planning
.

 

 

STEP 4: SCHEDULE PASTOR-PRINCIPAL MEETING

All families who are new to St. Hilary School are asked to schedule a brief meeting with the Pastor and Principal.
Meetings are scheduled in 15 minute increments, and children are welcome but not required to attend.
