Families of Kindergarten and PreK students enjoyed "Welcome Events" around the District this week. They were able to meet teachers, visit their classrooms and even have some play time.

Remember that all PreK classes begin after the long, Labor Day weekend, we look forward to seeing all our PreK students at school on Tuesday, September 7th. Please check your school for arrival times.
