Mrs Gigglebelly's Visit 2019It happened again! Mrs. Gigglebelly came for a tea party at Easterseals Happiness House on Wednesday, April 24, 2019. We enjoyed getting dressed up for her arrival and celebrated with cookies and tea. Once she arrived, she read us her very own story, "Mrs. Gigglebelly is Coming for Tea," by Donna Guthrie. On April 23rd our students had the unique experience of participating in a video chat with the author, allowing for a wonderfully enriching experience for everyone. Special thanks to our K-1 Lead Teacher, Ms. Theresa Collins for organizing this annual event.
