End of School Surprise

Author Paige Kane presented signed copies of her book “Howie in Newport” as an end-of-the-school-year gift to the kindergarteners at Pell Elementary School and each pre-K student at the JFK School in Middletown. Using rhyming verse, Howie the cricket takes an alphabet journey through the city. Kane, a Rogers High School graduate, is seen here with Mrs. Rayner and Mrs. Borges’ classes at Pell. The funds to buy the 234 books were generously donated by Lisette Prince. (Photo by Jen Carter)
