Countdown to Kindergarten for rising Durham kindergartners this week
Posted July 31, 2013
You know it's nearly back-to-school time (for traditional calendar students) when we start talking about the kindergarten countdown events.
Durham County schools' annual Countdown to Kindergarten is scheduled for 5:45 p.m. to 8 p.m., Friday, at the Museum of Life and Science in Durham.
Rising Durham Public Schools' kindergartners and their parents can tour the museum's exhibits, ride a school bus and learn about bus safety; learn about school lunch programs; meet UNC-TV characters and Dottie, the Durham schools' kindergarten mascot; complete lunch, bus and other applications; learn more about before and after school care programs; get school calendars; and sign up for a library card.
It's free. For more information about the event and kindergarten at Durham schools, check the system's website.
Parents of rising Wake County kindergartners should mark their calendar for Aug. 17 when Marbles Kids Museum and Wake schools hold the annual Kick-off to Kindergarten.
