Parents who plan to send their children to the Whitethorn School kindergarten for the 2010-2011 school year are urged to come and enroll your children at the early enrollment scheduled for Wednesday, April 14, from noon to 1:40 p.m. at the school, 16851 Briceland-Thorn Road, Whitethorn. Please bring a copy of your child’s birth certificate and immunization records.
A free school readiness workshop for all interested parents will be offered following early enrollment. The workshop, led by Eric and Victoria Shafer, will help parents prepare their children for school and provide an opportunity to learn about the kindergarten program available at Whitethorn School. Attendees will receive a pamphlet of activities to help children develop the skills necessary for success in kindergarten.
Supervised child care with hands-on activities will be provided from noon until 4 p.m. Funding for the workshop and child care is being provided through a grant from First Five Humboldt, Humboldt County Children and Families Commission, that supports the connection of parents and schools in our community.
