Preschool graduation at club
The Boys & Girls Club of Laguna Beach celebrated its Even Start Club Preschool graduation June 17 with 24 local families.
The children performed three plays, acting out scenes from favorite books.
Afterward, they were awarded with their first "diplomas." Julie Olsen, Laguna Beach school readiness coordinator, also handed out backpacks full of back-to-school necessities.
Parents and children enjoyed a potluck lunch after the festivities.
Even Start Club Preschool is a free program for qualifying low-income families with 3- and 4-year-old children.
The majority of the children are from Spanish-speaking households. They leave the school knowing how to count, say the alphabet and enjoy books, the club said in a news release.
