The Oysterponds School District’s final installment of its public series “What is 21st century education?” will be held Thursday morning.

The coffee hour’s topic will be about the importance of early childhood education. The district launched its preschool program in September.

Oysterponds school officials have hosted several sessions this year to discuss how the district is preparing students for college and careers by implementing the Common Core Standards Initiatives program, which is a national set of rigorous benchmarks to help public school students master reading, writing and mathematics skills.

Thursday’s event is open to the public from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the elementary school in Orient.

To RSVP, call (631) 323-2410.
