I Love to Read Month
February is I love to Read Month. Get the discussion rolling by asking your students how they are celebrating at school. What was your favorite book as a child? As an adult? What do they love to read about?
Child Development Clinic
The child developmental clinic for the Canyon Creek, Elysian, Elder Grove, Molt, Morin, Pryor, Independent, Broadview and Blue Creek School Districts is scheduled for Friday, February 24, 2012. Please contact the Canyon Creek School secretary at 656-4471 to set up an appointment. This clinic will be held at Canyon Creek School.
This screening provides parents with information about typical development for children ages infant to six years old (not yet in Kindergarten). It also aids in identifying children who may be at risk for future learning problems or may just need a little extra support in their development.
Each child will be screened individually in the areas of fine and gross motor development, cognitive development (thinking, reasoning, and overall readiness), speech and language development, hearing, general health and vision (3-6 years old). There are free services available for those children who may need that extra support in their development.
All children ages birth thru six years of age who live in your community are welcome!!!
**Appointments are necessary for this free clinic**
For your child to complete the clinic it takes approximately 1.5 hours.
Questions about this clinic can be directed to the YWCCSS Coop Office at 628-7903
Please share this information with family and friends.
Join us for the science fair re-imagined as the invention convention on February 23rd. Each student participating will have an invention to share with you from 6:00-7:00 pm.
The book fair will be open during that time too.
