Kindergarten: a BIG welcome to our newest BEES!

Your kindergartner will be introduced to the Saxon Phonics with Complete Reading Series, a systematic, structured program for reading a writing. They will learn math with Eureka Math which is a program that builds foundational math skills. Science and Social Studies will be integrated with language arts through IB with a focus on inquiry to build basic understanding.

The following assessments will be given during your child’s kindergarten year:

  • Computer Adaptive Assessment (CASS) – Given at the beginning, middle and end of the year. From APS and used to measure student growth in both math and reading foundations.
  • Dibbles – Given at Beginning of the year as baseline for reading. Used for all students three times a year to inform instruction and possible Early Intervention Program placement.
  • Benchmark Assessment – January, March and May. The benchmark assessment is a system wide assessment to show student growth throughout the year.
  • GKIDS (Georgia Kindergarten Inventory of Developing Skills) – State checklist with ongoing assessment in all areas of Kindergarten development.

There are many special events and field trips planned for our kindergartners this year! Please ask your child’s teacher if you have questions about an event!
