Kindergarten 101: January 30 9:30am St. James United Methodist Church

Are you the parent or guardian of a rising kindergarten student? Then this program is for you! We know that every parent has questions about kindergarten (even if this is not your first kindergarten experience)! Attendance at the fourth annual Kindergarten 101 workshop will allow you to learn about registration, medical requirements, how you can prepare your child for kindergarten, and more.

You’ll hear from experts such as Dr. Ethan Lenker – Superintendent of Pitt County Schools, Jennifer Johnson – Public Information Officer for Pitt County Schools, Lisa Tate, Director of K-5 Education for Pitt County Schools, Dr. Jennifer Crotty – pediatrician, and others. By the end of the morning, you’ll feel well prepared to get ready to enter one of the most exciting times of your family’s life: Kindergarten! The event is free and open to the public, but pre-registration is encouraged at this link  https://bit.ly/2QDocGT .
