Free Classes Getting Ready for Kindergarten

Blogger's Note: The following comes courtesy of Mary Rieck, coordinator for PEAK, Pottstown's early education readiness program.

The Pottstown School District Pre-K Counts partnership announces a new early learning opportunity for Pottstown students entering kindergarten. 

The Pennsylvania Office of Child Development and Early Learning awarded the partnership funding for six summer kindergarten readiness classes.

The six free Summer Kindergarten Readiness Program classes will be offered at the PEAK community early learning partner sites beginning Aug. 12.

To be eligible for the classes, students must be entering Pottstown School District kindergarten in September and meet income requirements. Family income cannot exceed 300% of the federal poverty level – for a family of four that is an annual income of approximately $70,000.

Spaces are limited – call now to register.
