ORANGE — PreK3 students Josie Riedel (top) and Danica Gilliam are enjoying the new Library center in their classroom at St. Mary Catholic School. Mrs. Rhonda Harmon contributed the floor padding and monkeys for their library. Awesome parents donated and installed a door to the classroom next door giving Harmon more storage space. That enabled her to optimize the space in her classroom, improve all the learning centers as well as establishing this new educational center.
