KINDERGARTEN INFORMATION NIGHT

Eason Elementary will host Kindergarten Information Night for parents and their incoming kindergarteners (2018/2019 school year) on Monday, April 30 from 6:00 to 7:00.  The students will be divided into one of four kindergarten classrooms, and each will participate in some exciting student activities.  While they are having fun in the classroom, parents are invited to join Mr. Prohaska in the gym for some useful information about the upcoming school year.  Afterwards, parents and students will come together on the playground for a treat and some play/social time.  We hope you can join us!

If you have friends or neighbors in the Eason area who have children who will be attending kindergarten next fall, please remind them to enroll their students a.s.a.p.  Only students who have completed the online enrollment process may attend Kindergarten Information Night.
