The Greens Farms Elementary School PTA has planned a series of three summer play dates when incoming kindergarten students can meet and get to know other kindergarteners before school begins.

The PTA said the program aims to ease the transition to kindergarten, particularly for youngsters who may not have attended preschool or who are new to the area.

Play dates are planned on the playgound behind the school, whether permitting, on the following dates:

Saturday, July 27, from 4 to 5 p.m.

Thursday, Aug. 1, from 4 to 5 p.m.

Tuesday, Aug. 20, from 4 to 5 p.m.

The PTA said refreshments would be served during the play dates, and siblings would be welcome.
