Every summer, Duke’s Office of Durham and Regional Affairs works closely with Durham’s Partnership for Children and Durham Public Schools to support Durham’s Transition to Kindergarten initiative, which helps families prepare for school, communicate with teachers and promote a positive attitude for children entering kindergarten.
Throughout the summer, the initiative hosts fun and informational school-readiness events at schools throughout Durham. We’ll be at the events for our partner schools — Lakewood on July 20, Y.E. Smith on August 12, E.K. Powe on August 20 and Forest View on August 22 — along with the big Countdown to Kindergarten event on August 7 at the Museum of Life and Science.
Spread the word to families with rising kindergarteners, and join us at the transition-to-kindergarten events!
