Pre-K, kindergarten registration prepares kids and their parents
Bobby Ray Memorial teacher Maria Lanier asks Zoe Mendieta, 5, some questions at kindergarten registration Thursday.
Close to 450 youngsters participated in the kindergarten registration process last week, as well as 169 children qualifying for pre-kindergarten.Screening coordinators Melany Crothers and Janet Nunley expected a large turn out this year, and made preparations to accommodate the crowd. The excited children and their parents enjoyed visiting different stations set up in the West Elementary gymnasium. While the parents took on the task of completing the required paperwork, the children were allowed to play in a supervised area with large building blocks, Legos, assorted games and mini kitchen displays.
