District helps Preschoolers 'BEE Ready'

Nearly 60 Greenfield children and their families attended the district's annual "B.E.E. Ready" preschool screening program on Saturday, 3/4 at Elm Dale Elementary.

The free program is open to all children who reside in the School District of Greenfield who are three or four by March 1st and have not yet attended four-year-old kindergarten or Early Childhood Special Education.

While there, students were evaluated in the areas of language, fine and gross motor, and academic concepts. The program also seeks to identify areas of strength and weakness and offers parents next steps to help further their child's development.

District professionals were on hand to answer questions about Greenfield's Early Childhood Special Education, Jr. Kindergarten and Sr. Kindergarten programs.
