Parents of preschool age children can learn more about kindergarten at a series of Parent Academy meetings this school year.
The six workshops will be held from 5:45 – 7 p.m. at Clinton Park Elementary School on Arrow Drive, and are free to attend. The program is offered through a grant from the Barksdale Reading Institute.
“Parents will learn tips and strategies to prepare their children for success in kindergarten,” said Clinton Park Principal Kelli Pope.
Topics covered include literacy, math and general development. Workshops include simple, daily things that parents can do with their children to help them prepare for kindergarten and to be in a classroom setting.
All materials will be provided at no cost, and childcare and snacks will be provided for children ages 3-10.
“All participants will be entered to win a door prize at each session,” Pope said. “
For more information or to register, contact Clinton Park Elementary at 601-924-5205 or email pope at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Parent Academy events will be held from 5:45 – 7 p.m. on the following dates:
Ladies, did you know we have the MOST TALKED about CHRISTMAS TREE at the Quisenberry Library? Starting in December, the Library will be displaying Christmas Trees from local businesses. We decorate our tree with ornaments made by you! We encourage the many people that come to visit the library to take an ornament home from a business they plan on visiting or supporting as a reminder. (You can add a coupon or samples to your ornament). The library staff has told me the last two years that people love to come by our tree and see all the business represented by our group! This year, Britter Kinsey and Wendy Harris will make it SUPER EASY for you! They have gathered supplies and all you need to do is bring your business cards!
