Durham Public Schools’ annual Countdown to Kindergarten at the Museum of Life and Science (433 W Murray Ave.) is next Thursday, August 4th from 5:30-7:30 pm. This free event for all rising kindergarteners and their families provides important information and resources and helps to promote a smooth start to the school year!
Families will have a chance to tour the exhibits, sign up for a library card, learn more about other Durham community resources, ride a school bus and learn about school bus safety, learn about school lunch programs, complete lunch, bus and other applications, check out the DPS before- and after-school programs, get school calendars, and much more!
The Partnership will be at the event representing the Transition to Kindergarten (TTK) Initiative, providing school readiness tips and parent resources and providing free books to all children who attend. Ready Eddy will also make an appearance!
This event kicks off a busy month for the TTK Initiative, with Popsicles on the Playground and Kick-off to Kindergarten events taking place at all 8 of our Transition team schools! For a list of upcoming events and to sign up to volunteer, please click here.
