Vision and Hearing
These screenings are done throughout the year for new students to the district and all students in Kindergarten, 1st grade, 3rd grade, and 5th grade. I am happy to do a vision and/or hearing screen on any student at the request of a parent or teacher. In addition I will do a screening for Acanthosis Nigricans (AN) at the same time as the vision/hearing for 1st, 3rd, and 5th grade students. I typically begin screening 3rd and 5th grade students within the first month of school. Kindergarten and 1st grade students will follow. I love having parent volunteers for this, so stay tuned for these opportunities.
Fifth grade students are screened. A parent letter with more information will be sent home closer to the screening time.
Growth and Development
This program, entitled "Always Changing", is presented to 5th grade students in the Fall. It covers age appropriate material about puberty. More information, along with a permission form, will be sent to all parents of 5th graders closer to the program time.
