The Lopez Elementary students meet Curious George

The Lopez Elementary School and Biloxi Excel by 5 program gave young children the chance to meet Curious George this morning.

Kids and their parents anxiously waited outside the school doors to watch Curious George ride up in the Biloxi Tour Train with a police escort and sponsor Community Bank.

The kids listened to a reading of ‘Curious George Saves his Pennies.’

Excel by 5’s Susan Hunt says this is a five to birth initiative that helps young kids and their parents learn about money. “We try to have events and we’ve done ‘I’m a super saver’ with Community Bank. This is our fourth year doing it. This is something we do every year with Community Bank.”

After the kids listened to the story, they joined Curious George for an art project.
