|NC Pre-K had fun in April celebrating the Week of the Young Child. The Week of the Young Child™ is an annual celebration hosted by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) celebrating early learning, young children, their teachers and families.
Among the many activities, numerous community leaders and politicians visited the classrooms and read with the children. Pictured below is NC Senator, Tommy Tucker with a class at Walter Bickett Education Center. Others who read with the children include: Caleb Barnhardt, Sheila Crunkleton, Pat Kahle, Nina Meadows, Charles Perry, Steve Ramsey, Gene Robbins, Stony Rushing, Linda Smith and Suzanne Walters.
