The Accelerating Young Minds Pre-K Partnership presents a free program to families and children from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.on April 26 at Arthur Jacobsen Elementary School, located at 29205 132nd Ave. SE Auburn. At this event, guests can see how students are using learning tools on computers, understand these tools and observe how these tools help prepare students for kindergarten and future academic excellence.
