Joppa Maple Grove School District and Southern Seven Head Start will sponsor a Child Find on Tuesday, April 30, 2013 from 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. at Joppa Maple Grove Elementary School Library. Preschool children ages 3-5 that reside in the Joppa Maple Grove School district and are not currently enrolled in a preschool program need to be screened.
In addition, Kindergarten screenings will be held for those children who will be entering Kindergarten for the 2013-2014 School Year. Illinois state law requires this screening for all children entering kindergarten.
Appointments may be scheduled by calling Joppa Maple Grove Elementary at 543-7434.
A team of professional early childhood educators will be present to assist both parent and child through the screening process. The screening consists of game-like activities. Hearing and vision screenings will also be available. The screening process usually takes approximately 30 minutes to complete.
A letter will be mailed following the screening process if your child is selected and will list the items required for enrollment.
