There was business to take care of for many of the families visiting Center’s Back to School Bash — like enrollment, immunization checks and such.
But Center made sure it was fun.
Face-painting, balloon animals, mini-golf and hot dogs entertained the hundreds of adults and children who wandered through the many information booths, including a table for LINC.
“All and all a good community event,” said Center Interim Superintendent Michael Weishaar, “where the primary purpose is to go through enrollment, but also to come back and meet the principals and get ready for the ‘19-’20 school year.”
The site coordinators for LINC’s three elementary school programs greeted their families, including the new LINC site at Indian Creek Elementary School, joining Boone and Center.
“We’re meeting parents letting them know they can pre-enroll” for LINC’s program, said Indian Creek site coordinator Marissa Cage, “and letting them know we can meet for some parent interviews and get their kids enrolled.”
The first day of school for Center is Aug. 14. Families that still need to enroll can go to https://www.center.k12.mo.us/registration.
