Last night BESD53 held our "Kindergarten Roundup"! We had Kindergarten teachers from every building meet the incoming students and did a quick screener to help ensure the best placement for them. Information was also handed out on kindergarten readiness, and a fun photo op for our future BESD53 Tigers! Thank you to all who came and the staff who helped make this a success!
