Greensboro, NC - In a few days, summer vacation will be over. Students attending schools on the traditional calendar start school on Monday, August 26th.
For some families, the new school year is a tough transition.
The Greensboro Children's Museum is hosting an event on Saturday, August 17th to make going back to school or to school for the first time easier for the whole family.
The museum's free Kickoff to Kindergarten event is from 3pm to 5pm at the museum's North Church Street location. The event helps prepare children and their families for Kindergarten or pre-K.
The museum has partnered with Guilford County Schools, Guilford Education Alliance and various other community resources. They'll have Kindergarten teachers available to answer last minute questions for the students and parents and to provide helpful information. Children will also have fun exploring the museum's exhibits and Edible Schoolyard, practice boarding a real school bus, make special Kindergarten crafts, sample tasty options for healthy snacks & lunches, as well as visit with special PBS characters.
