Early Childhood, Kindergartners and Mini-Chargers were delighted when a super-favorite character came to visit them today. He was very interested – you might say curious about the children and was thrilled when they wanted to hear one of his adventures. Mrs. Boockmeier read aloud from one of Margret and H.A. Rey's storybooks. Many thanks to our Development team for this wonderful enrichment presentation.
