VIDEO: Did We Catch Your Student with Gov. Patrick?
The governor spent time at Linden School Wednesday morning, reading a copy of "Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus" and performing with a music therapy class.
Gov. Deval Patrick stopped by Linden School to announce $281,000 in "Innovation School" grants offered to 29 schools in the district, including a $10,000 award to Linden.
Principal Richard Bransfield said the money would be used to further explore ways to implement the STEAM - short for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics - curriculum at the school.
Before the event got too serious, though, the governor spent time with two classes: Ms. Degelmann's Kindergarten class, to whom the governor read "Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus," and a music therapy class hosted by Laura Micheli, MT-BC, of the Melrose-based Roman Music Therapy.
