This past week, incoming kindergarten students had the opportunity to come into Adel Elementary for two 1 ½ hour sessions and do a variety of activities. This screening time helped the Early Childhood team to:

  • Observe the student in a classroom environment
  • Observe the student’s interactions with adults and peers
  • Assess readiness skills, such as:
    • letter/sound knowledge
    • Fine motor
    • Listening
    • Oral language, etc.

We also want to say a big thank you to the Adel Lions Club for supporting vision screening during this time. This is such a great service for our families!

Adel Elementary staff had so much fun seeing new faces and are so excited to welcome all our students next fall!
