Some rising kindergartners have been getting prepared for class this fall.

Teachers at Jones Elementary School have been assessing rising kindergartners. About 60 students came through the auditorium and answered a number of questions.

The assessment gives teachers an insight into the students' strengths and weaknesses. They said at first it can be a little stressful for the kids to be in a strange place, but it doesn't take long for them to settle in.

"You can see that they come in a little bit shy and by the time they leave they're feeling a lot more comfortable and they get out of that shell," kindergarten teacher Dina Streeter said. "So, I think its' nice for them to come and get to know us, and it just takes that level of fear away."

The new school year begins the last week of August. And, if you want something to wrap your brain around, kids who start kindergarten this fall will be the Class of 2030 when they graduate from high school.
