  • Music with Matt

    We were fortunate to have Matt Huleatt visit us during the February public school vacation week. Matt has worked at the nursery school during his studies at Wheaton and is a senior this year. Matt is student teaching at Taunton High School this semester but made the time to visit each class and shared his musical talents with all the children. It was great to hear Matt play the drums and the children each got a chance to be the drummer! The children always enjoy Matt’s company and guidance and they were impressed with his concert for us!
