Kindergarten Readiness Kits

Our team spent a day in March assembling 800 curated kindergarten readiness kits, which we are delivering for free to rural schools in coordination with schools' kindergarten registration. The kits include Natasha Wing's popular "The Night Before Kindergarten" book; school readiness activity cards, marker and write-and-wipe sheets for practicing numbers, letters, and shapes; child blunt-end scissors for safely practicing cutting paper; crayons and Sesame Street alphabet coloring book; Play-Doh; and materials for helping parents help children learn the important skills needed to start kindergarten.

Funded in part by Idaho Future Fund in the Idaho Community Foundation.

During the March Festival fundraising period, our IdahoPTV Education team answered phones and took donations. And we got to meet Ed Word the CapEd bookworm!

Technical Education and Career Opportunities

We are looking for youth ages 15-23 who are interested in technical education and careers and active on social media to serve on our Jobs Explained youth advisory committee. More information.
