Vivian Wilson from Spaulding Park conducted the summer reading program last Thursday.  She showed us the different types of houses the Nez Perce lived in and explained the lifestyle and habits of the people who lived here before us.  She also provided us with a craft that resembled a Nez Perce suitcase and an origami fortune teller to help us learn about the different homes.  The kids were all very attentive and learned a lot from Vivian.  The reading program will resume again this Thursday.  We will be discussing Italy and have a fun craft.  Photo provided by Aleta Coppernoll.
