Elementary School/Kindergarten Information Session
“Finding that perfect match between student and schools is often
the key to a successful school experience for students (Pearl M. Roziers)”.
In order to help our parents transition successfully from preschool to
kindergarten, we have arranged for Pearl M. Roziers, Assistant
Superintendent, Office of School Choice Duval County Public Schools to come on
January 21st at 5pm to do a short presentation about the choice of Elementary
schools, magnet programs or charter schools in Jacksonville. This will help
parents make an informed decision about their child’s future and education. Please plan on attending this presentation.
