Second Annual Ready Freddy
Mercer County Schools hosted the Second Annual Ready Freddy event Saturday, March 18, 2017 at the Mercer Mall. Ready Freddy is a school readiness event aimed to help upcoming Pre-K and Kindergarten students and families ease into the school setting by offering a variety of hands on activities and information. Freddy and his “army” (which consisted of Mercer County teachers, teacher assistants, principals, and Central Office volunteers) had ten learning stations where children and their families learned a new skill and received a “take away” activity to do together at home. Students and families also got to go through a simulated lunch line and ride on “The Magic School Bus” with Ms. Frizzle herself. School readiness is a component of the West Virginia’s Campaign for Grade-Level Reading.
