The kindergarten classes at White City Elementary have been studying community helpers. To culminate their units, students were visited by Leland Karlson, a Fort Pierce Utilities Authority employee. Mr. Karlson visited each classroom, and explained the dangers of playing with kites by electrical wires. He also told the students that they should report any wires that are on the ground to an adult and not touch them. Mr. Karlson brought with him a giant display. Students were able to see up close the dangers of playing on or around power lines.
Students in Mrs. Irby’s and Mr. Tuner’s Kindergarten classes got a special visit in honor of World Read Aloud Day (February 24, 2016).

She then gave book recommendations to the students. A fun, engaging, time was had by all!
