Durham Kindergarten Celebration to Offer Free Fun, Giveaways
Celebrate kindergarten registration time this Thursday
Durham’s Partnership for Children and Durham Public Schools are hosting a Kindergarten Registration Celebration Thursday, March 24, 5-8 p.m., at Hillside High School for parents to register kids for kindergarten, get questions answered and schedule a kindergarten health assessment appointment.
The event will offer family fun and culminates a week-long effort to enroll eligible kindergartners and help children and families get ready for school. Kids who register for kindergarten at the event will get free prizes. (Children eligible for kindergarten must be age 5 by Aug. 31, 2016.) If you’ve already registered your child for kindergarten, you’re invited to celebrate with other families. Hillside High School is located at 3727 Fayetteville Road and is on the following bus routes: number 5, number 5K and number 7.
Head to the celebration for:
- Food trucks: Dang Good Dogs and Captain Cookie & the Milk Man
