Kindergarten students attending Sycamore Avenue and Cherokee Street Elementary Schools recently got accustomed to their new buildings during an informative kindergarten playdate event hosted at each school.

The young students were given the opportunity to tour the classrooms, meet their teachers and get to know their new classmates. During the sessions, both Sycamore Avenue School Principal Stuart Pollak and Cherokee Street Principal Jill Lahey were on hand to greet the students and parents. 

Additionally, refreshments were served by each school’s respective PTA as the students mingled and enjoyed their first official visit to their new schools.
