LAREDO, TX (KGNS) - For a four or five year-old child, transitioning into Pre-K or Kinder can be difficult for them. This is why the United Independent School District will be hosting an orientation event at each of its elementary campuses for parents of incoming Pre-K and Kinder students.

The orientation event at the schools will allow parents to obtain information on how they can: register their child for Pre-K and Kinder for the upcoming 2014-15 school year, meet their child’s prospective teachers and Principal, and take a tour of the school with their children so that they both know where various areas of the campus such as the cafeteria, gym, library, and nurse’s office are located.
