We had a surprise visit from Superintendent Mr. Marty Bowe in Kindergarten at T.C. Knapp on one of our phase-in days. Mr. Bowe graciously read our students the book The Kissing Hand by Audrey Penn. Afterward, he followed us on a scavenger hunt around the school to try and find the main character, Chester Raccoon. Along the way, students stopped at each of their specials classrooms to see where they go for each special. Chester even gave Mr. Bowe his very own kissing hand! How special! Thank you to Mr. Bowe for your willingness and time to make our students’ day more special.
