In addition to performing a lot of awesome tricks on his bike, Matt Wilhelm told us  how he was bullied when he was in school.  He talked to the students about bullying and how they, just by doing something small and kind, they can be someone’s “Batman.”

Author Visit:  Today Joe Brown told us about being an author. Currently he has 9 published books. Mr. Brown encouraged everyone to use their imaginations to create stories and helped students compose a story while he was present.  Mr. Brown generously gave each student a copy of his book, Come On, Get On.  Enjoy reading it with your child.
