Today our Preschool, KDGN, First and Second Graders met a very special visitor. His name is Michelangelo. Michelangelo is a miniature therapy horse who visits residents at assisted living facilities/nursing homes/group homes and students at schools for children with special needs. He has been bringing his 1-hour Reading & Informational Program to libraries and schools all over New Jersey. The children learned about miniature horses, what they eat, where they live, and since they are too small too ride, what kinds of jobs they have. Michelangelo has a picture book that has recently been published about him – Michelangelo, The Little Therapy Horse.
On Monday, our 3rd & 4th graders will have the opportunity to meet Michelangelo as well. Thank you to our HSA for sponsoring this special program for the students at MTES!
