This letter is of inform you that Potosi School District will be offering a full-day, every day 4K program beginning the 2019-2020 school year. The school board officially approved of this change at the June 24 school board meeting.
Mrs. Jenna Schroder, our former first grade teacher, will be teaching our 4K students this fall Mrs. Jill Davis, our previous 4K/ECE teacher will be moving into a full-time elementary special education position.
The full-day 4K program will provide a morning focus on school readiness while the afternoon will provide play-based social-emotional learning opportunities. For families wishing to only send their child a half day, this will be possible if families are able to provide a mid-day transportation home.
There is increasing evidence that quality full-day learning opportunities are beneficial for young children. As a result of this evidence, our state is proposing to fully fund all-day, everyday preschool programming in the public schools. In anticipation of this added funding, Potosi Elementary School is embracing the opportunity to expand our 4K programming.
If you have any questions regarding this change, please contact the school office 608-763-2161.
Yours in Education,
Potosi School District
