The San Ramon Valley Council of PTAs will hold two free Kindergarten Information Nights with a panel of teachers, parents and curriculum experts discussing the kindergarten curriculum and issues regarding child readiness.
"Kindergarten has dramatically changed over the past five years," reads the PTA flier. "Children are being asked to do more academically. … As parents we want you to understand exactly what these expectations are so you can make the best decision for your children."
The program is being held from 7-8:30 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 21, at Montair Elementary School in Danville, and in San Ramon at Coyote Creek Elementary on Feb. 19. Register at www.srvcouncilpta.org.
Many elementary schools also have their own informational meetings; call individual schools to learn more.
