Getting Ready for Kindergarten Calendar
Current data suggests that more than a third of kindergarten students enter school unprepared. As part of United Way's strategic direction to increase literacy rates in the region, we partnered with Gratiot Isabella RESD and the Regional Early Literacy Collaborative to create a “Getting Ready for Kindergarten” calendar. This 12-month calendar contains fun activities that parents can do with their children to get them ready to start kindergarten. There are also links to local libraries and other community resources for families.
Over 5,000 copies of the calendars were distributed to elementary schools, community agencies, health care providers, libraries and child care centers around the region.
