News from the Adair County School District

Pre-school spots for the 2011-2012 school year in Adair County Schools were filling up fast this morning.


"We're very pleased" said Anita Goode, Coordinator.

"Parents who scheduled screening appointments during our early registration are going to find out by the end of the day today whether or not their child qualified. They will be able to make their plans in advance."

Tasha Parrish, mother of Billy Joe Parrish said, "I was nervous, but he seems to be having fun with all this". Billy Joe's reaction when told he would be attending pre-school next year, "Yeah !"

Pre-school programs in Adair County Schools provide intensive family literacy services that combine learning activities for parents and children, helping parents to become active partners in their children's education.

The goal is for children to achieve a high level of success in school and life by focusing on the child's physical, intellectual, social and emotional development, including interpersonal, and socialization skills. For more information about pre-school eligibility and programs contact Anita Goode at (270) 384-2476.
