IU Health West Hospital Celebrates Kindergarten Here I Come! Event with Avon Schools
An IU Health West Release
On Saturday, April 27, caregivers from Indiana University Health West Hospital teamed up with the Avon Library and Avon Community Schools to celebrate their upcoming kindergarten registration.
The second annual Kindergarten, Here I Come! event was an amazing opportunity for kindergarten-age children and parents from all Avon elementary schools (or anyone with general questions about the kindergarten experience) to come together. Kids had the opportunity to do some fun crafts, enjoy story time with a librarian, sign up for library cards and even practice those skills they'll need to have in kindergarten, but that we so often take for granted...like opening cartons of milk or bags of apples, carrots and pretzels.
Parents (and their soon-to-be kindergarteners) even had the chance to sit down with two kindergarten teachers from Avon schools, ask them any questions they had on the brain and get some helpful tips to help them prepare for school.
A fun time was had by all--including volunteer caregivers from IU Health West Hospital. And, this was a great opportunity to buid excitement for IU Health West Hospital's Kindergarten Countdown camp, which kicks off in early June, and provides an opportunity for those children who will start kindergarten this fall, but may need a little extra support learning skills to prepare them for the classroom. Kindergarten Countdown is a partnership between IU Health West Hospital, Avon Community Schools and the United Way of Central Indiana.
