Show & Tell Information Sessions
You are invited! We regularly host info sessions at schools that receive full-day Kindergarten funding via our Foundation. At the session, our Director Tracy Poulin and the Principal talk about the benefits of a full-day of learning for those children who truly need the extra support. Then you will go on a tour of the Kindergarten classroom and meet the Kinders and their teacher. Our only expectation is that you consider getting involved and tell your friends, family and colleagues about what you learned.
