Our newest students will be able to “Leap into Learning” by signing up for a library card and for activities like Hartford Public Library’s 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program.

This family-friendly event includes fun activities for children including a children’s fashion show, face-painting, photo-booth, and pizza.

The Hartford Public Library staff will also offer their Tots & Tunes Dance activity and have their BookMobile on site.

The fair provides families with the opportunity to engage with our:

  • Elementary school leaders
  • District Curriculum & Support Services Supervisors for English Language Learners and Special Education
  • Outreach, Community Partnerships & Family Engagement
  • Health Services
  • Transportation
  • and Food Services.

In addition to the fair, the Office of School Choice will host Kindergarten registration sessions in the community and ongoing registration services ongoing in the Choice Office.
