The RCMS Builders Club members were great role models for preschoolers last Thursday.  The group shared a story and then helped the kids decorate pumpkins.  Savanna Sweet, Leann Tankersley, Aden Amburgey and Logan Bullock were great readers.  The young students at Tic Toc Preschool and CAP Child Development Center greatly appreciated the visits.

There is no school next Monday or Tuesday.
