Willmar, Minn., schools looking for sense of solidarity


WILLMAR — The Willmar School Board wants to see more communications between the school district’s early childhood education programs and its elementary schools.

Early childhood educators gave an update on their pre-school literacy efforts at a School Board workshop on Monday.

They talked about efforts to help kids develop social and emotional skills and a developing rating system to help parents choose the right pre-school program for their children.
