Voluntary Pre-K Summer Classes Offered in Marion County
Currently more than 3,100 children attend kindergarten in Marion County Public Schools, but before heading off to kindergarten, it may be a good idea to enroll them into voluntary pre-k classes.
This summer 10 Marion County schools will be offering VPK classes for children ages four and five.
Classes are available Monday through Thursday from 739 a.m. until 5:20 p.m.
The first day of VPK classes was June 10,2013 and they will last until August 1, 2013.

They know their letters, their consonants, they know their sounds, they know their colors, they can count.
