Are Kindergartners ready

Image result for news images

The BND did an article on the recent study that children are not prepared for Kindergarten.  

One of our own Kindergarten classes was in this wonderful article and shows that Granite City is doing a good job at preparing them.  Then the Police Chief Rich Miller did a letter to the Editor talking about our great programs we have in Granite City to Help Education succeed in Our Town.
