Paige Van Zant visit

paige-vzToday EY 4th and 5th graders were treated to a special visitor today. UFC Fighter and Dancing with the Stars dancer, Paige Van Zant, met with our students to talk about bullying. Thank you, Paige, for taking time from your busy schedule to share an important message with our students. A special thanks, too, for Mrs. Randolph. She is Paige’s aunt and put in a lot of time organizing Paige’s visit, students’ questions, and a slideshow.
