Mark Messman Superintendent, Eden Valley-Watkins Schools November 16 Update Building Project: Progress on our secondary con- struction project continues as expected. Thompson Concrete has been busy completing side- walks and the north staircase, and some minor modifications to the curb and sidewalk on the north- west corner of the property. We're still waiting on some acoustical treatment samples that might be added to the top of the gymnasium walls. Other options may include a site visit to inspect the product, performance, and then determine if it's necessary. We have a pre- installation meeting scheduled for next week with the floor and tile manufacturers. These meetings are advantageous to the coordina- tion of dates and times, and review the detailed specifications of the blueprints. The ceiling grid of the office complex is complete and installers are now moving mate- rials and man power to the bath- rooms and Brooks Street Lobby for completion. Summit is responsi- ble for fire protection, and is on site installing the piping and sprinkler heads throughout the project. Please stop in for a visit with your questions and comments, and be sure to exercise caution when you're in the proximity of the construction zone.

EV-W Early Childhood Screening Eden Valley-Watkins School District will be having Early Child- hood Screening for children who are three and a half years old and up to those who will be entering kindergarten in the fall of 2013 who have not been screened. The screenings will be held Dec. 7, 2012, and March 1, 2013. Invita- tions will be mailed a month in advance of the screening dates to those children, who are age eli- gible, on the school census and those open enrolled to our district. The State of Minnesota has mandated that all children must complete a developmental screen- ing prior to kindergarten enroll- ment. The purpose of the screen- ing is to be sure that all children are ready to learn when they enter school. The Eden Valley-Watkins School Readiness Program also needs students to be screened prior to starting preschool in the fall. Screening is free of charge and includes developmental screen- ing, hearing and vision screen- ing, review or health history and immunizations, and assessment of height and weight. The com- plete screening takes about an hour to an hour and a half. Any questions or if your child or a child you know is age eligi- ble and does not receive informa- tion about the screening, contact Anno Johnson the EV-W District Licensed School Nurse at (320) 453-2900, ext 2135.
