Horses of Hope Visits Kindergarten
Horses of Hope paid a visit to some of Mallory's Kindergarten classes on Thursday.  Shannon Stewart, from Horses of Hope, and a couple of volunteers brought a pony named "Little Black" to meet the children. After the children had gotten a chance to pet (and hug) Little Black, Shannon announced to the classes that each student would be receiving a copy of the book "Little Black, a Pony" by Walter Farley, the same author that wrote the best selling novel "The Black Stallion".  The books are being presented to Mallory's Kindergartners courtesy of Horses of Hope and Dollar General.  What a special time our little bison had!  Little Black shared many hugs with our kids, and Miss Lenz even stood still long enough to do an interview with KOLR 10.  Learning is a lot of fun at Mallory!

Kindergartners and Apples!
To celebrate the end of their apples unit and their study of the fall season,  Mallory's Kindergarten classes recently visited Sunshine Valley Farm in Rogersville.  While there, they learned about the many different varieties of apples, learned how to properly pick apples, and then were allowed to pick some to bring back to school, where they made home-made apple sauce!
