BELLINGHAM, Wash. – It’s not too late to sign up a child for pre-kindergarten Head Start classes at Bellingham Public Schools this fall.

There are still vacancies for eligible three and four year olds at Silver Beach and Roosevelt elementary schools, and at Heather Commons.

Leslie Turner with the Opportunity Council says Head Start prepares kids and families for kindergarten.
