The River East Transcona School Division is set to help assist in transitioning students into kindergarten.
Parents whose children will be entering kindergarten in 2013 are invited to Preschool Growing and Learning Days to help provide a sense of the school and its administration and staff. There will be games and activities for children, and parents will have the opportunity to get their children’s vision and hearing tested.
The event for children entering Margaret-Underhill, Wayoata, Radisson or Harold Hatcher will be held at Ecole Margaret-Underhill (25 Regina Pl.) on April 17 from 2 to 6 p.m.
