This morning I had a chance to stop by and chat with our AM Preschoolers and they were thoroughly happy with the breakfast pizza and excited to do some Easter egg hunting this weekend. They’re an awesome group! Kudos to Ms Kammie and Ms Mary!

I heard great things about the science fair yesterday. When I returned from my visit with the retiree group it was wrapping up. I spoke to some students and they had a great time.

Stopped in this afternoon in Mrs. Robinson’s class for a few minutes and caught a presentation on Kaiserwald Latvia and it’s role as a concentration camp in World War II. Seeing and hearing the info brings back memory’s of talking to one of the best men ever.. Lloyd Clements POW.

In Mrs. Johnson’s class they’re talking about the jet stream and what directions storms typically come from. They said the west... which is correct. I asked them if they knew what direction really really bad storms typically come from Also & several said the north,they are on it.
