EVART — Evart Elementary School will host kindergarten roundup from 5:30 to 7:15 p.m. on Tuesday, April 12, at the school, located at 515 N. Cedar St., Evart.

There will be a chance to meet teachers, tour the school, ride the bus, make crafts, eat dinner and watch a short presentation along with registration. This year's theme is "The Cat in the Hat."

Students also will be screened using the Gesell screener, and those students not previously screened through preschool will be screened in vision, hearing and speech.

Parents in attendance should bring a copy of their child’s birth certificate, immunization records and proof of residency, such as a driver’s license. Parents who are unable to attend should call the school at (231) 734-5595.
