St. Mary’s Kindergartners Learn Where Easter Ham Came From

St-Marys-Kindergartners-Learn-Where-Easter-Ham-Came-From Kindergarten students from St. Mary Catholic Community School recently spent a day of fun and learning at Fair Oaks Farm. The day included a handful of "hands-on" activities, educational movies, and viewing a baby pig that was just a few minutes old. During that time, the students were able to ask questions to the staff member who was very knowledgeable regarding the baby piglet they were able to see through a viewing window. “We have gone to Fair Oaks many times learning all about cows and have always enjoyed it. The Pig Adventure was just as educational.” said Mrs. Dawn Krajci, kindergarten aide. The students were so eager to learn all about the pigs and a staff member from Fair Oaks complimented teachers, Mrs. Candace Wadas, Mrs. Linda Mesich, and Mrs. Jenny Potter on how very well behaved the entire kindergarten class was.
