Providing Vision Screenings at Countdown to Kindergarten

NECO students volunteered to help out at the Boston Public School’s Countdown to Kindergarten event on August 26, 2014. Countdown to Kindergarten provides support with successful transition into kindergarten to Boston Public School children and their parents. It takes place every year and offers different fun activities as well as vision screenings. Every child that participated received a pair of sunglasses and a coloring book. Countdown to Kindergarten helps to ensure that vision issues won’t impeded a child’s academic success.
