Summertime Fun

Jerabek Elementary welcomed summer with a series of ongoing play dates for potential students attending the school in the fall throughout the summer season. The play dates were open for children starting Kindergarten or Transitional Kindergarten, and families were invited to participate and attend as well. From swinging on swings to chasing each other around the playground, and playing hide and seek, the students engaged in an assortment of activities. New friendships were made and will soon become part of the students’ summertime memories. These playdates not only encouraged students to meet new children before the school year, but they also increased the participants’ confidence as well. At the final play date, students were greeted by their teacher for a “Meet the Teacher” activity. Families and students can visit to find out more information about programs like this.
