Lancaster ISD Launches College Savings Plan Push with Kindergarten Tailgate

As we kick off the Lancaster Tiger football season, we do so with some of our youngest learners in mind, our kindergartners! On Friday, September 10, we’re inviting all Lancaster ISD kindergartners to the Football Friday Tailgate experience at Beverly D. Humphrey Tiger Stadium. There will be food, music, fun, and an opportunity for parents of Lancaster ISD kindergarteners to sign up for our Dollars for College savings plan. The Kindergarten Kickoff Tailgate event will be from 4:30 pm to 7:00 pm. As a bonus, at 6:45, all kindergartners and their parents will be asked to meet at the south end of the football field to run out on the field ahead of the LHS varsity football team. This tailgate experience will be a fantastic student event, and you do not want to miss it.
