St. Barnabas will host its "Kindergarten Experience," Feb. 8 from 6 to 8 p.m. for any youngster in the area that will enter kindergarten in the fall, whether they are registered or not.

Students and their parents will go through what a day of kindergarten is like in 15-minute segments including gym class, music class, checking out books from the library, making a project in art class, working on computers in tech lab, and going through the lunch line and paying for a snack "like the big kids do."

Registration for the event begins at 5:30 p.m.

Children will also take home gifts like the kindergarteners do including a tote bag to take to class with them, a report card for all of their classes and a book from the library.
