Free testing available for preschoolers Parents with concerns about their preschooler's walking, talking, seeing, hearing or motor skills may have their children screened for free on Friday. The screenings are for any preschool children who live in Dickinson, Ellsworth, Ottawa or Saline counties between the ages of 2 years and 10 months to 5 years old. The screening is administered by the Salina Heartland Early Education Program and is conducted at 700 Jupiter. To schedule an appointment, call the preschool screening team at 785-826-4868, extension 240. Brad Fowles, industrial arts teacher at Salina's Sacred Heart Jr.-Sr. High School, checks every couple days on the progress of the school's new shop area. "It's going to be quite a shop," the five-year veteran of Sacred Heart said. "We're updating almost everything. It will be an entire new facility for us." He and his students will have twice as much space in the new shop area — the first time the school's industrial arts shop has been updated since the 1960s. The work on the shop in a 54- foot-by-60-foot Morton building T KINDERGARTEN ROUNDUP adjacent to the school is the first step in the school's 1998 renovation plans, which should be completed this summer. The renovation includes: • Moving the industrial arts- drafting shop to the new building. • Renovating the old industrial art space into a weight training center. • Remodeling the cafeteria and commons area and expanding it into the remaining space of the old shop area. • Renovations of the school's stage so it will be able to face either the gymnasium or the new commons area. • Renovating the old drafting and weightlifting areas in classroom and meeting space for multimedia presentation equipment. The total renovation cost'will be about $175,000. Of that, about $100,000 is for the shop area. The money for the work has been donated by Charles Walker, a Salina businessman and longtime supporter of the school. He is pr6vid- ing the construction crew for the work and is donating money for new equipment and tools. The new shop will have 2,400 square feet of shop area with a separate finish room and 500 square feet of classroom space for mechanical drawing and drafting. Fowles has been able to design the area for his program. The school is taking a combined approach to industrial arts and drafting by continuing hands-on instruction as well as incorporating computerized drafting and design that engineers and architects use. The building also will be heated and air-conditioned. ,' , '• "It's not just four walls for a shop," Fowles said. "It's going to be slick." Kindergarten roundups scheduled By The Journal Staff Workshop Promoting ideas focus of workshop A local freelance writer will present a workshop on combining words and graphics to promote ideas from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Wednesday at the Salina Senior Center, 245 N.

Any child who will be age 5 on or before Aug. 31 is eligible to enter kindergarten and should attend a roundup at their nearest school. In most schools, parents and students will be able to visit with teachers, see the classroom and find out what to expect in kindergarten.
