If your child turns 5 years old by July 31st it is time to get him or her registered for kindergarten in Sikeston! Principal of the Kindergarten Center Jenny Hobeck tells KZIM KSIM they are hosting a painless 1 and a half hour screening on Tuesday of next week to prepare for the coming school year…They will  test speech, language, development, and more. They will have immediate results in case parents have questions. Hobeck says you should still attend even if you do not have all of the necessary documents as long as they are provided before the first day of school in Sikeston on August 15th. They include: a state issued birth certificate, Social security card, immunization record, Medicaid cards, and proof of residency.  Call ahead for an appointment at 471-0653. There are usually around 3-hundred children enrolled in the Sikeston Kindergarten Center.
