PreK Virtual Field Trip 

Mrs. Messer's Precocious Pre-K Class is sending out the biggest "Wildcat Applause" to Dr. Schadale Stevens, her staff and clients at Stone Mountain Dental. Dr. Stevens graciously gave us a professionally guided tour of her new Lilburn practice in honor of Dental Hygiene and Black History Month. The students toured the entire practice from the cozy patient waiting area, state of the art equipped consultation and treatments rooms, and even her office where she problem solves any dental challenge that comes her way. 

Her passion for the maintenance of healthy smiles was evident with her sweet gifting ofDental Hygiene Goodie Bags filled with a vibrant colored or Disney character adorned toothbrush and CREST toothpaste for every student in all three SHES Pre-K classes. We complimented our week-long COMMIT: Pinkie Promise of practicing good daily dental hygiene with the attached Model Mouth crafts. Pre-K is so grateful for experiencing yet another example of "Black Excellence" in the form of a Community Helper.
