Dear Kindergarten Families-

Welcome to Riverside School District 96! We are excited to welcome your child to Kindergarten this coming fall. Below is a letter regarding upcoming academic screening times for our kindergarten students. We have also sent the letter via regular mail. Placements for AM/PM sessions at Ames and Central will be mailed out by the first week of August. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Todd A. Gierman, Principal
A.F. Ames Elementary School

Dear Parent/Guardian of Incoming District 96 Kindergarten Student-

In order to best prepare your child for his/her kindergarten experience, the kindergarten teachers will be meeting briefly with each incoming kindergartner on August 11 and 12 to assess their current academic knowledge. These assessments do not require advance preparation of your child. It is beneficial for the teachers to have this information in order to prepare for your child’s individual learning experience. Assessment appointments are available between 9:00 a.m.-3:30 p.m. on Tuesday, August 11, and 1:00 p.m.-7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, August 12. Each session will take approximately 20-30 minutes. These assessment sessions will take place at Ames Elementary School, located at 86 Southcote Road in Riverside.

Please follow the instructions below to sign up for your child’s assessment time slot, using the Online Scheduler:
