The workshops are open to children who will be 5 years old on or before October 1, 2013. The purpose of these workshops is to give children the opportunity to meet their future classmates and to become familiar with the school environment. Parents are invited to stay for refreshments.
Workshops will be held at each of the four elementary schools from 10 to 11 a.m. on the following Saturdays: February 2, March 2, April 13, and May 4, 2013. There is a one-time fee of $10 for all workshops at Brookdale and F.N. Brown; the other schools are free.
