Happy 10th Anniversary Hi5!
Happy Anniversary Hi5!
Entering Kindergarten is an important childhood milestone and sets the foundation for a child’s academic success. For the last 10 years, school districts in Allegheny County, along with the AIU, Trying Together, the United Way of Southwestern PA and other community partners, have ensured a smooth transition to kindergarten thanks to the Hi5! Partnership. Established in 2010, the partnership promotes school readiness for children and ensures the transition to kindergarten is a success for children and schools throughout the region. Thanks to the support of this unique partnership, 96 percent of children who are eligible for kindergarten in Allegheny County registered on time last year. Watch this video to learn more about how schools promote kindergarten registration.
Throughout the last 10 years, the Hi5! effort has grown to include all 43 school districts in Allegheny County and has expanded its reach to include community and early learning partners. Read some of their testimonials.
