IS YOUR CHILD ENTERING KINDERGARTEN THIS FALL?
If so, please join us for "Welcome Kindergarten!", a special story time just for children entering kindergarten this fall.
Children will listen to stories about starting kindergarten, sing songs, and do a craft. Joining us as guest readers will be Mrs. Cawood from Donley Elementary School, Mrs. McFee from St. Thomas Aquinas School, and Mrs. Roseth from Marble Elementary School.
This FREE program is limited to children entering kindergarten in fall 2010. No older or younger siblings, please.
