The first grade students had a  practically perfect Pig Day, playing pig games, posing as pigs, pigging out, and petting real pigs!  It was a special day to focus on the letter “P” and to see and hear all the words that begin with “P”.  Our special faculty member, Collette Russell, arranged to have some baby piglets come to class to let the first grade students see, touch, and especially smell the little porkers!  It was a fun day for the first grade!
