• Screening



    Friday, July 14, 2023

    Dear Parents/Guardians/Families,

    As the new academic year approaches, we are excited to welcome your child to the Randolph Public Schools for their kindergarten education. We believe in creating a nurturing and stimulating environment that fosters growth and development for all our students.

    In preparation for the upcoming school year, we would like to inform you about the Kindergarten Screening process that will take place from 9:00 am - 3:00 pm on the following dates:

    • Lyons Elementary School: Monday, August 21, 2023 

    • Young Elementary School: Tuesday, August 22, 2023

    • Donovan Elementary School: Wednesday, August 23, 2023

    • JFK Elementary School: Thursday, August 24, 2023

    The screening will utilize the Pearson ESi 3rd edition, a comprehensive assessment tool designed to evaluate various aspects of your child's readiness for kindergarten. The purpose of the Kindergarten Screening is to gain valuable insights into your child's skills and abilities in different areas, including language development, cognitive skills, fine and gross motor skills, and social-emotional development. The screening process will involve a series of age-appropriate activities and observations conducted by our experienced team of educators and support staff that will last between 15 - 20 minutes. 

    To ensure a smooth and efficient screening process, please sign up for a time using the links below. Please note that there will be interpreters available during the appointments between 10:00 am -12:00 pm. If you are unable to schedule one of those appointments, please contact Evelyn Morales to ensure an interpreter is available.

    At the screening event, you will also fill out the parent questionnaire, which is a valuable tool designed to gather information about a child's development and behavior from their parents or guardians. This questionnaire is an essential component of the Kindergarten Screening process, as it provides insights into a child's skills and abilities in various areas. 

    Should you have any concerns or questions regarding the Kindergarten Screening, please do not hesitate to reach out to your school principal:

    • Lyons ES: Principal, Kelley Breen at (781) 961-6252 

    • Young ES: Principal, Dr. Sara Hosmer at (781) 961-6256

    • Donovan ES: Principal, Kimberly Duane at (781) 961-6248

    • JFK ES: Principal, Dr. Mel Hackett at (781) 961-6211  

    Thank you for your continued trust and cooperation. Together, we can ensure a successful start to your child's kindergarten year.
