  • UPK Transition to Kindergarten Event

    The annual Transition to Kindergarten event on May 3rd at #33 School and Ryan Center was a huge success!  Children participated in hands-on learning activities that connect with the New York State Common Core Learning Standards.  They received several free learning materials including books, markers, crayons, writing journals, magnetic letters, play-doh and puzzles.  Parents attended brief workshops to help them support their child’s learning and help them transition to kindergarten.
