Students in McNeal Elementary School’s pre-kindergarten program joined thousands of children across the country in participating in a project called Hanging of the Hands.
Children submit pictures of their hands, which are hung in the state Capitol rotunda for Parent’s and Childrens Day April 7, to remind legislators of “our most precious commodity — our children,” teacher Vicki Paoli says.
“Our children made Wildcats with our handprints,” Paoli says. “We hung our banners in our school lobby and now we are getting ready to ship them off to the Capitol to be hung in the Rotunda.”
