Still time to sign up for Kindergarten Canvass!

We are in the final push of our Kindergarten Canvass! But we still need more volunteers to make sure we reach our goal of knocking on the door of every incoming kindergartener in New Haven to welcome them to school and answer questions.
Volunteers go out into the community in teams of two and visit homes armed with information about school uniforms, school start times and other frequently asked questions. We also have books for the children and information to help parents help their kids be successful in school.
To sign up for Thursday's canvass go here: kindergarten2012
Thursday's canvass will go from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Volunteers should report to Barnard Environmental Studies Magnet School at 4 p.m. for a brief training.
For more information, contact Abbe Smith at 203-676-0463.
The citywide Kindergarten Canvass is a collaborative effort between the city of New Haven, New Haven Public Schools, New Haven Promise, the United Way of Greater New Haven and Boost!
