The pre-enrollment process begins in Frantz Gymnasium. Families should plan on 30-45 minutes to take care of paperwork and visit classrooms.

 

Hot dogs and chips will be provided for all who visit.  Children will receive special gifts for visiting.

 

The ACE building is home to four different preschool programs: Bridges to Learning, Head Start, and two Pratt Lily Pad classes. Each program provides excellent preparation for success in kindergarten.

 

Suzan Patton, assistant superintendent believes a rich, interactive environment is best for preschoolers. “We offer a research-based curriculum to meet the needs of each child.  Not only do they receive reading, writing, and math instruction, but their daily instruction is delivered using SMART Boards, the latest in computer technology.”
