Currently Canal Winchester is NOT accepting applications for peer models to begin at the start of the 2012/2013 school year. If class size allows, we will consider adding additional peer models later in the year. We ask that parents interested in having their child attend the peer model program sign their child up for one of our scheduled Child Checks, which is a developmental screening process. The next Child Check will occur September 21st. If you would like to schedule a time for your child to attend, please contact Stacey Hart at 614-920-2756. The mission of Canal Winchester Local School Districts to teach our students to become effective and responsible citizens and to achieve their maximum potential in order to prepare for the most seamless transition to kindergarten possible.
Additional Child Checks will occur on Jan 25th and April 19th.
