For Carden Williams, the choice was easy.
“Do you want the side that has ‘Class of 2030’ or ‘Ready for Kindergarten?’” asked the photographer.
“Ready for Kindergarten!” he remarked without hesitation.
His enthusiasm was shared by the hundreds of children who attended the Virginia Beach City Public Schools (VBCPS) annual kindergarten registration and orientation event April 25 at elementary schools across Virginia Beach.
While parents completed paperwork for student enrollment, the rising kindergartners visited classrooms, enjoyed snacks and – everyone’s favorite – rode a school bus.
One child at Rosemont Forest Elementary expected her favorite part of kindergarten to be “all my new friends.”
Food was the highlight of the morning for a rising kindergartner at Diamond Springs Elementary who said the snack he was having was the best cookie ever.
School personnel and parents at the registration event hope the new students will have the best 13 years ever, graduating in the year 2030.
“Class of 2030,” remarked one parent at Three Oaks Elementary. “Wow! I can’t believe it.”
Believe it. The members of the Class of 2030 are here and they are ready for kindergarten.
