Prince/Princess Party Builds Excitement for Reading

Litman 1Donna Wise, our school librarian, began this tradition back in the Fall of 2009.  With the help of our reigning princess, Ms. Chloe Logan, the kindergarten students get to spend some time learning about all things fancy and listen to a ‘read aloud’ of the popular book Fancy Nancy.  Then, it’s party time!  The little prince and princesses get to enjoy an ice cream parfait with their class.
