4kWashburn’s 4K Program Gets Ready for Another Year!

The first day of school is always nerve-racking, especially for first-time students! The Washburn School District offers a unique opportunity for children to ease into the start of their education journey by attending the Washburn 4K program. The program is designed to provide 4-year-olds with social and emotional opportunities to grow at their own developmental level and become acclimated to the school environment. Washburn 4K has been successfully transitioning young students for almost 20 years and is available through open enrollment to any child that is a part of a school district with a 4K program. It is a unique opportunity that teaches students mindfulness, inclusion, and offers a support system as they begin their education. Washburn Elementary principal Al Krause says the 4K program is a “critical tool for giving those kids a jumpstart in kindergarten.” (for complete article click here)
