Exeter Elementary School PTO to Host Presentation on Full-Day Kindergarten Program
Community Invited to Attend, Tour Main Street School Expansion
EXETER — Principal Steven Adler would like to invite parents and community members to attend this month’s PTO meeting to find out more about Main Street School’s goal of implementing a full-day kindergarten program.
Wednesday, Feb. 21 at 6:30 p.m.
Main Street School gymnasium, 40 Main St.
During this month’s PTO meeting, Principal Adler will present on the benefits of full-day kindergarten.
A program of this sort has been in the works for the last seven years, and residents will have the chance to vote for it on election day on March 13.
Research has demonstrated that a full-day kindergarten program not only better prepares students academically, but also provides them with the skills they need to grow physically, socially and emotionally.
Additionally, during the PTO meeting, attendees will have an opportunity to tour Main Street School’s $5.4 million expansion that includes new classroom space and a playground.
“We hope residents will come to this PTO meeting on Wednesday to learn about the number of benefits a full-day kindergarten program will have for our young learners,” Principal Adler said. “Plus, with our new addition, we’re better prepared than ever to expand our offerings to students.”
