Kindergarten, Here I Come!

By Jennifer W. RSS Thu, February 6, 2014

Do you know a child who will be 5 years old on or before September 1, 2014? If you do, it is time to enroll for Kindergarten! The School District of Philadelphia is currently enrolling children and enrollment will be open until May 30, 2014. Visit The School District of Philadelphia’s website to learn more.

The Free Library will be hosting an information panel at The Thomas F. Donatucci, Sr. Library on Thursday, February 13, 2014, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. The panel will feature a Kindergarten Teacher, a Head Start Teacher, a Representative from the School District of Philadelphia, and a Parent who has been through the process.
