It is with great pleasure that I welcome you and your child to the New Albany Elementary K-1! The staff and I look forward to an exciting school year and we are pleased to have you as partners in your child’s educational journey.
Kindergarten Screening is a two part screening process. The Registration/Health Screening will be April 9th & 10th at the McCoy Performing Arts Center and the Kindergarten Assessment Screening will be August 5th & 6th at the K-1 Elementary. When parents check-in for their appointment in April they will be asked to schedule the August Assessment appointment at that time. During the August appointment your child will be assessed by the Kindergarten teaching staff. Your child needs to attend BOTH appointments.
