GRAND RAPIDS, MI - Is your child ready for kindergarten?
If you think your youngster needs a little preparation for school, a three-day, free camp, hosted by River City Scholars Charter Academy kicks off Tuesday, Aug. 12.
The camp is for any child entering kindergarten in the fall. Children do not have to be enrolled in the charter school, located at 944 Evergreen St. SE, to attend.
School leaders describe KinderCamp as a chance for any kindergarten-aged student to spend three days experiencing what kindergarten will be like. Teachers are supposed to introduce basic kindergarten skills and give children a feel for how a normal school day will proceed.
Camp is scheduled from 8 to 11:30 a.m. and ends on Thursday, Aug. 14.
Parents can call the school at 616-248-3390 to sign their child up or same-day registration is available. River City Scholars offers a full day young 5s kindergarten and regular kindergarten classes to children and serves students through grade 7.
