WVIA Visit

WVIA visited Kennedy Elementary school! Kindergarten students had a blast while learning throughout the 2 days they spent with at our school. Clubhouse Mom, Debby Konnick, taught a science lesson on animals and their habitats. Children watched a clip from curious George, made their own habitat, and listen to some stories. Each child got their very own special meet & greet with curious George, himself. Pictures of each classroom are on the WVIA website! Children were sent home with a book and school supplies donated by WVIA.
