Head Start Graduates Prepare for Kindergarten

It was a proud day at Head Start centers across El Paso and Hudspeth counties as parents, teachers, and community members gathered to celebrate the 2023 Head Start graduates. 

The excited young scholars, many of whom entered the program as infants in early Head Start, donned bedazzled caps and gowns to receive their pre-K graduation certificates in elaborate ceremonies that ranged from in-person events to drive-by parades. 

"We are so proud of our students and thankful to parents for entrusting us with their child’s early education and development in these precious first years." said Head Start Director Socorro Rodriguez, "And with a foundation that began in Head Start, we know that these little ones will go on to accomplish amazing things in kindergarten and beyond." 

A total of 1,027 2023 Head Start graduates made the transition from preschool to kindergarten.
