To Parents and Guardians


Vision and hearing screenings will be administered on October 17, 19 and 22 to students in kindergarten, first, and third grade as required by state law. Vision screening will consist of distance visual acuity, binocular vision, and color vision for kindergarten and first grade. Third grade vision screening will consist of distance visual acuity. The hearing screening will consist of an audiometry for kindergarten, first and third grade.


If your child does not pass the vision or hearing screening, the school nurse will send a letter to share the results and make a recommendation for further evaluation by an eye care specialist or audiologist.


A vision and hearing screening only provides a snapshot of how your child performs on the day the screening was administered and is not a substitute for a complete vision and hearing evaluation by an eye specialist or audiologist.


If you have any questions about the school vision and hearing screening program, please call Susan Linton, Montgomery Elementary School Nurse at 686-1733 or email

lintons@sycamoreschools.org. Thank you!

PTO - HASSLE FREE MONEY

HASSLE FREE MONEY for Montgomery Elementary

Did you know that the school has partnered with businesses in the community to have those businesses donate money directly to Montgomery Elementary for the everyday items you purchase?

Here’s how it works:

Register your Kroger Plus Card – When you enroll your Kroger Plus card in the Kroger Community Rewards Program on www.krogercommunityrewards.com and select Montgomery Elementary PTO (VP832), you will automatically earn dollars for the school based on the purchases you are already making.

(Anyone with a Kroger Plus card can do this….don’t forget to ask friends and family members if they would like to help Montgomery Elementary earn money.)

Collect Pipkin’s Receipts - Save your Pipkin’s receipts. Send the receipts to school in a marked envelope to your homeroom teacher. Pipkins will donate a percentage of those receipts directly to the PTO!

Collect Box Tops - Box Tops for Education can be found on various household products. Look for the symbol, and save Box Tops or visit: www.boxtops4education.com/earn/participating-products . Please begin clipping and mark your calendars for our Fall Box Top collection, through October 5-26. Students should turn Box Tops in to their homeroom teacher. The class that collects the most Box Tops will get a Pajama Day and special treat.

Remember: Your child may also ask other special people in their lives (grandparents, aunts/uncles, friends/neighbors) to clip/save their Box Tops and Pipkin’s receipts for them too. This is a great way to boost their collection and an easy way for loved ones to support our school!
