On Thursday, Feb. 16 London Elementary School first grade students had a very special visit. Residents of Madison Senior Living Community came to read books to four of the first grade classes.

Maxine was the guest reader in Lisa Dunmon’s class. She read “Franklin’s Valentines” to the class and she dressed for the occasion.

The students listened to the story, colored some pictures, and had many conversations with Maxine. It was the highlight of their day.

Maxine took the pictures back to Madison Senior Living Community to share with her friends there. The students had a great time with Maxine, according to Dunmon
