APW’s pre-K and UPK orientation eases transition for incoming students and parents

Altmar-Parish-Williamstown Elementary School recently hosted a special orientation event for incoming pre-K and UPK students.

APW administrators, teachers and members of the transportation department welcomed the district’s youngest students with a variety of activities designed to help them understand classroom expectations and the morning/afternoon bus procedures. Members of the healthcare team were also on hand to talk to parents and provide information about different programs that are available to students.
