The future pre-kindergarten and kindergarten students at Milton Elementary met at the park today.

The students, who will begin school over several days next week, were all invited to a play date at Picard Park Sunday afternoon.

The event, which was organized and hosted by parents, not the school, was a way to help students feel comfortable and meet some of their classmates before school started.

"Get them on the right foot and also for parents to meet and have some friendships as we start the new school year, because the more that you know the more that the people you get to meet and have relationships the more involved you get with the school," said Marguerite Blanchard, mom of a kindergartener.
