Parkville Students Catch the Gingerbread Man

Parkville students caught the Gingerbread Man! Pre-K and kindergarten classes had been following clues to find the character from the children's book, "Gingerbread Man Loose in the School". On Dec. 18, the Gingerbread Man was spotted in the hallways and Parkville Principal Ms. Murray chased him into the school library to get him back into the book where he belongs!
Earlier in the week, Parkville students were treated to a virtual visit from Laura Murray, author of the Gingerbread Man book series. She read one of her books aloud, answered students' questions, and encouraged students to use their imagination to create stories. This virtual author visit was made possible by the Parkville PTA.
