Gove has a successful Kindergarten Round-up

BELLE GLADE — Gove Elementary School is ready for the incoming kindergarten students! Gove had its Kindergarten Round-Up on April 25, and it was a big success. The media center was full of parents that preregistered fifty-two students. Fifteen of those students are from Gove’s prekindergarten class, which means Gove is growing its own students! A very special thanks to the prekindergarten teachers, Ms. Blanco, Mrs. Villavicencia and Mrs. Menendez, for their great support!

The leadership team members did an outstanding job with presenting information at five different centers (reading, writing, science, math and social studies). The sixth grade ambassadors assisted the presenters by translating in Spanish. It was a very enjoyable event where parents practiced the activities presented and then received kindergarten readiness activities for the upcoming year.
