APS Celebrates Early Learning During 25th Anniversary of Georgia Pre-K Week



These Pre-K Students from Towns Elementary School enjoyed having class volunteers and reading the book, “The Very Hungry Caterpillar.” 

Georgia Pre-K Week is  October 2-6. Community members, partners, and employees of Atlanta Public Schools are showing their support for quality early learning by reading in APS Pre-K classrooms.  APS joins GA Voices for Children and over 159 counties in the state to draw attention to Georgia’s Pre-K, a lottery-funded hallmark program that was pioneered in Georgia 25 years ago. The award-winning book “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” by Eric Carle has been designated as the feature book to be read to students during the week. APS operates 53 Pre-K classrooms throughout the district. Volunteers have signed up to read each morning to more than 800 students. Use the hashtag #GaPreKWeek to see how APS and districts across the state are celebrating our youngest learners.



Deerfield Elementary School Pre-K students kicked of Pre-K week with a parade, dancing, and cheers for early learning.
