3K-4K Library Visit 2018-2019

Once again, Fontana Elementary 4K class and 3K Preschool enjoyed at lovely walk to the library.  Every new school year, we extend an invitation to these teacher’s to visit our library.  We love being able to introduce a new generation of children to the library, and give the parents/guardians an opportunity to see what the library has to offer.  They were treated to a snack and stories by Miss Jodie.  Afterwards, the children enjoyed playtime at our Imagination Station and, of course, we had blocks, blocks and more blocks.  Thank you to Mrs. Nelson, Mrs. Sullivan and all the parent chaperones.
