All-Day Kindergarten is Making the Grade in Conway

by Tony on July 31, 2014

According to the Conway Daily Sun, full-day kindergarten implemented just two years ago is already proving to be beneficial. All-day kindergarten programs were instituted at John Fuller, Pine Tree, and Conway Elementary after voters approved a warrant article to fund the programs. In a report to Conway School Board the Principals off all three schools say they are seeing a difference in the readiness of entering first grade students, and attribute it to the added classroom time. The report goes on to say that educators were able to add full reading and writing workshops during the day without missing regular studies.
