Torrence Pre-kindergarten is promoting Small Business Saturday, and is involved in a project to promote people shopping in Keokuk at locally owned stores. On Saturday, November 29, the nation is promoting small businesses in all communities. Parents will receive a form to fill out with the names of two local businesses that they have visited. When the forms are returned to school, the teachers will send them in to Scholastic. Each family that visits two small businesses will receive two free books from Scholastic. Torrence Pre-Kindergarten supports small business and challenges the community to do the same.
