Welcome to Kindergarten Round-up!
It's that time of the year when we round up all Queensbury children who are eligible to attend kindergarten for the 2017-2018 school year. Children must be five years of age on or before December 1, 2017.
Queensbury Elementary School (QES) looks forward to working with you as your child prepares to begin his or her school journey. We recognize that success in kindergarten and throughout the elementary years is based on social, emotional, physical and cognitive development.
Regardless of a child's entrance age, developmental ages and abilities vary considerably. With that in mind, each child who is preparing to enter kindergarten must go through a screening process. This gives our school staff insight on your child's strengths and areas he or she may need support in as he or she transitions to school. Early awareness of these strengths and weaknesses helps us develop the best educational plan for your child.
Kindergarten Round-up is conducted by a team of school specialists, including kindergarten teachers, reading teachers, school nurses and speech and language pathologists. During this time parents also have an opportunity to meet with our transportation department and school office staff.
Kindergarten pre-registration must be completed online. We look forward to meeting you and your child in May.
