On Oct. 16, Ms. Adena’s and Ms. Kathy’s Pre-K class at WSS Elementary School had a male involvement day. Jerry Smith from the WSSE Police Department came. The students and their visitors each got to explore the police cruiser. The class will also be doing fingerprints at a later date to create an identification folder for each student in case they are ever lost.
