Kindergarten Transition Festival

The Trumbull County Kindergarten Transition Fair will be held on Saturday, February 2, 2019 at the Eastwood Mall from 11:00 A.M. until 2:00 P.M.   It will be located in the Main Mall Concourse.  Parents will have the opportunity to visit specific “stations” that are designed to align with the Ohio Department of Education Early Learning Standards.  Your child will enjoy being able to board a real school bus and complete “Make and Take” activities.  Look for the booth with the Girard “G” logo, secure a registration/enrollment packet for your upcoming Kindergartner and a Prospect Staff member will give you child a free gift.    Please help us out by forwarding this information to any family you may know who has a child who will be entering Kindergarten next year.  A child must be five (5) by August 1st to enroll in kindergarten for the 2019-2020 school year.
