USD 470 PreK is joining Reach and the Ark City Public Library to host Read and Stroll on April 23 from 4-6 p.m. at Lovie Watson Park.
Thanks to an early literacy grant through the Kansas Health Foundation, Arkansas City Public Schools is able to share family literacy bags with multiple community organizations.
Today was a big day for our PreK students as they attended their very first day of school. Their eyes were sparkling with curiosity and excitement and we loved watching them make new friends, explore learning stations, and dive into imaginative play. Here’s to a wonderful adventure full of learning, laughter, and endless possibilities! We know they’re going to do great!
Our maintenance crew has been especially hard at work this summer designing, constructing, and installing PreK playgrounds. Each elementary school will have a new PreK playground soon if they don’t already. The playgrounds promote wellness and increase safety for our youngest students because the equipment is designed for their size and developmental needs. These playgrounds are also designed to provide our earliest learners with opportunities to develop social skills through active, creative play.
We are hosting a preschool screening and enrollment event on July 12, 2023, at Adams Elementary School.
