  • Preschooler Wins Bid

    On April 10, Superintendent Dr. Earl Metzler made good on his auction offer to read to a winning student’s classroom. As part of the Pollard School PTA’s Silent Auction/Family Fun Night, administration and staff were asked to consider a donation of activity or service to be put up for auction. Dr. Metzler’s time was highly sought after, but in the end the highest bid went to four year-old Michael Smith, a TLC student in Ms. Katie Foss’s preschool classroom at Pollard School. The children and staff were excited to learn that Michael’s family outbid all others to win the opportunity to have Dr. Metzler read to the classroom. After reading and singing with the children, Dr. Metzler then joined them at a small table to focus his efforts on drawing and writing about his favorite animal. The children were thrilled to add his page to their special classroom book. Michael is shown above sitting at Dr. Metzler’s right.
