First Lady Sandra Deal visits Discovery Point during Pre-K Week

Discovery Point Cumming was selected to have Georgia First Lady Sandra Deal visit during the 2016 Pre-K Week.  Mrs. Deal led a spirited reading of The Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister.

"The Rainbow Fish is an award-winning book about a beautiful fish who finds friendship and happiness when he learns to share. The book is best known for its morals about the value of being an individual and for the distinctive shiny foil scales of the Rainbow Fish."

Mrs. Deal was accompanied by Bright From The Start Commissioner Amy Jacobs.

Both Mrs. Deal and Commissioner Jacobs could not have been more gracious...spent 3.5 hours with us. What a great memory for Nadel and her husband, Thomas.
