Snow in April?

Students in Ms. Allen's class were so excited about the snow in April. Ms. Allen saw their excitement and allowed them to step out for a few minutes to enjoy the snow. Students will most likely remember this day for many years to come. Thank you, Ms. Allen, for sharing this beautiful photo of joyous students!
