Clinton Park hosts Parent Academy for pre-k parents

Through a partnership with the Barksdale Reading Institute, Clinton Park Elementary is planning an outreach program for parents of pre-kindergarten age children.

“We are holding a series of six workshops for parents and guardians of pre-school children who will be entering kindergarten in the fall of 2020,” said Clinton Park Principal Kelli Pope. “We will cover what children need to know and do to be ready for kindergarten, in literacy, math, and general development.”

Pope said the workshops will include simple, daily things that parents can do with their children to help them prepare for kindergarten and to be in a classroom setting.

Workshops will all be held at Clinton Park Elementary School and are free to attend. Childcare will also be provided for children ages 3-10. Snacks will be served.

“All participants will be entered to win a door prize at each session,” Pope said.
