The Baldwinsville Kiwanis Club has presented Palmer Elementary with a $1,000 grant for its READy for Kindergarten program.
Through this program, future kindergartners at Palmer have the opportunity to enjoy school experiences during the year leading up to their kindergarten year. The school invites the future kindergarteners and their families into the building several nights during the school year before they enter kindergarten. Through various activities, staff members share learning strategies with parents that they can do with their children to prepare them for kindergarten and to help them during the school year.
This is the third consecutive year that the Kiwanis Club has supported this innovative program at Palmer.
