Early educational exposure encourages success in future school years. The nationally accredited Pine-Strawberry Preschool is working on enrollment and screening for the 2003-2004 school year.
If you have a 3- or 4-year-old at home, bring them to school on Wednesday, May 14, for preschool screening. The school asks that you bring their birth certificate and current immunization records as well.
Developmental screening is available to any child from birth to 5 years old within the school district.
