has scheduled two community forums for parents whose children will attend kindergarten in the fall.
The forums will focus on the importance of the school district’s new all-day kindergarten program, including a sneak peek at the proposal for a more rigorous kindergarten and 1st grade curriculum that will be presented to the VVSD Board of Education on May 14.
“Research shows giving children a foundation for success in kindergarten, first, second and third grades is the key to their long term academic success,” said VVSD Superintendent Dr. James Mitchem. “All-day kindergarten is the cornerstone of the long term commitment this district has made to student achievement.”
The first forum will be May 7 at , 350 Blair Ln. in Bolingbrook. The second forum will be May 9 at , 725 Normantown Rd., Romeoville. Both forums will include a presentation at 6:30 p.m. followed by a question and answer session.
Refreshments will be served. Spanish language translators will be available.
Two forums for Spanish-speaking families will also be scheduled later in May.
Information on VVSD’s all-day lindergarten may be found at www.vvsd.org.
