Eighth-graders from the Language Arts Success Class at Teasley MS recently visited the preschool to share books, play games, participate in music movement activities and help in small groups.

“The visit provided valuable opportunities for the preschoolers to explore relationships and foster positive experiences with their new friends from Teasley,” said Donna Adams, administrator for CCSD Preschool Centers.  “It was a mutually beneficial visit that allowed the boys and girls from Teasley to be a positive role model and for the preschoolers to develop new social skills while enjoying books.”

“Undoubtedly, the Teasley readers enjoyed the experience as much as the preschoolers,” she added.  “The students at Ralph Bunche are looking forward to the Raiders next visit.”
