HENDERSON CO., N.C. (WSPA) – Kindergarteners in the Henderson County Public School system will receive a “Class of 2034” t-shirt this week.
The brightly colored shirts will be given to the students on Sept. 8 and Sept. 9, HCPS said. The t-shirts will help to inspire early conversations about college and career readiness.
The shirts are to help make the first few days and weeks of a child’s new school journey more fun, HCPS said.
This is a tradition in the school system that was revived back in 2015. This year, approximately 1,000 incoming kindergarteners will receive a “Class of 2034” t-shirt.
