EDUCATION NEWS — Moore County Schools recently announced that Pre K registration will take place on Friday, April 16 from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the front lobby of Lynchburg Elementary School.

Many educators swear by it and decades worth of studies confirm it. Pre K programs lead to greater success in academics and in life … especially for at risk students. It’s just a simple fact that kids who attend public preschool programs are better prepared for kindergarten than kids who don’t.

In Tennessee, over $85 million in public funding operates 935 Pre K classrooms that serves almost 18,000 four year olds and allows them an opportunity to develop school readiness skills … including Moore County’s Pre K Program.

To qualify in Moore County, your child must meet certain qualifications including being a resident of Moore County and the child must turn four years old before August 15. To register, you’ll need a copy of your child’s birth certificate, Social Security card, proof of residency ( a driver’s license or ID card with a Moore County address), proof of income (two recent pay stubs or your most recent W2), and your child’s current immunization records.

For more information, email Pre K Director Karen Blankenship at karen.blankenship@moorecountyschools.net. •
