New DVD helps families "Countdown to Kindergarten"

Countdown to Kindergarten recently unveiled a valuable new tool for families who are preparing to enter the Boston Public Schools: "I'm Ready," a 14-minute DVD about school readiness to help ease the transition to kindergarten. Countdown partners and BPS officials released the new DVD at a celebration in the Boston Public Library. Pictured here, Christopher Vanderhoop, Jr., of Dorchester, a student at the Young Achievers School of Mathematics and Science, receives gifts to thank him for starring in the video. The video is narrated in English by Mary Richardson, host of Chronicle on WCVB-TV, and in Spanish by José Massó from WBUR Radio. In addition to airing in Family Resource Centers and on BPS-TV, copies of the video will be available in five languages for all newly registered kindergarten families later this spring.
