Reeves Elementary Multi-Age Class 2011

Every January I trek to the Multi-Age Class at Thomas Reeves Elementary School here in Long Beach, Mississippi, to visit with the first and second graders.  We discuss everything “animal” you can imagine, and probably a few things you can’t.

Mostly I’m there to encourage the kids that what they are learning has a direct bearing on their success in life.  If they can’t read, they can’t get much of a job.  If they can’t write, they won’t go far.  If they can’t perform arithmetic they won’t be able to calculate volumes or count change back to a customer.

Mostly we have a great time telling stories and asking and answering questions about myanimals, their animals and my patients.  Here are some great photos of the kids and me having our annual fun time.  Our thanks to lead teachers Jill Lipski and Robin VonderBruegge.
See you tomorrow, Dr. Randolph.

Thanks to Mrs. Fruge' for the great photographs!

The kids really enjoyed their doughnuts and juice, but they were ready for the main event.
