In an effort to assist our newest learners in making a smooth transition to school, Durham Public Schools is conducting a welcome fair titled Countdown to Kindergarten on Friday, Aug. 3 from 5:45 p.m. until 8:00 p.m.
The event will take place at the Museum of Life and Science, located at 433 W. Murray Avenue in Durham. In addition to touring the museums exhibits, participants will have the opportunity to ride a school bus, learn about bus safety, learn about school lunch programs and meet UNC-TV characters along with Dottie (the Durham Public Schools kindergarten mascot).
Parents will be able to complete lunch, bus and other applications, learn about before- and after-school care programs, obtain school calendars and other important information, sign up for a library card and learn about more free resources.
Countdown to Kindergarten is sponsored by Durham Public Schools along with the following partners: Durham County Public Library, UNC-TV and Durhams Partnership for Children.
