Rotarians Hear About Pre-K Program


 Mary Ann DeMar, the Director of Literacy and Universal Pre-Kindergarten, for the Fulton School District, recently spoke to the Fulton Rotary Club about the Universal Pre-Kindergarten program.  The UPK program at the present time has 144, four year old students enrolled.  The program started in 1998 with a class size of 34.  It is funded by a grant from the New York State Education Department.  The UPK program follows the New York State syllabus for pre-school programs.  Each class meets for one-half day, and covers language and literacy development, math development, and social and emotional development.  Children that start their education early generally do much better in school.
