On Saturday, April 26th Peoria Public Schools will be hosting the Fourth Annual Kindergarten Transition Fair at The HULT Center for Healthy Living from 9am – 2pm. This event was established as an opportunity to introduce incoming Kindergarten students and families to district administrators, principals, and teachers from schools throughout the district. Over the years the Kindergarten Transition Fair has developed to become a comprehensive “one-stop-shop” for preparing for the upcoming Kindergarten school year. At the fair students and families can meet their school principals and teachers, get their child’s first library card, connect with early childhood resources, visit with the Methodist Wellness Mobile, enjoy the onsite petting zoo, and even get a free dental exam. With a wide variety of fun activities for children to participate in, cool prizes for students and parents, a chance to get a jump on early Kindergarten registration, and a free family style cookout for lunch; it is truly a great family event and an opportunity to prepare for Kindergarten.
With the approval of Monday night’s Human Resources report, the Peoria Public Schools District 150 Board of Education voted to accept Superintendent Dr. Grenita Lathan’s recommendation of promoting five current District 150 Administrators to Principals. The five employees assignments were announced today during staff meetings at each school. A letter to parents at each school is being sent home with students. (Click on the headline to read more!)
