Student Evaluation

  • A skills report/evaluation is sent home two times throughout the school year. The report is in checklist format that covers the basic objectives in social/emotional, cognitive, language and gross/fine motor skills.
  • Two times a year a narrative of the child’s progress will be included with the checklist. Parental involvement is encouraged and if there are significant problem areas, these should be discussed with the teacher via a conference.

Helpful Tips!

We found the following items to be popular with our students: raw vegetables, cheese and crackers, trail mix, apple sauce, nuts, fruits (cut into sections), and beverages (water, milk, juice). Snacks should not require adult assistance or preparation. Children will be provided time to eat their snack in a relaxed social setting.
