Nick St. Pierre, from the Reds' Adopt a Class team shares:
I look forward to visiting with the students monthly. Seeing their faces and getting their hugs makes me so happy, and at times, turns my day around. I love their questions – about whatever activities we are doing, about the stadium or the team, and what we did over our breaks. The mascot visit to the school was awesome last year...to see them get so excited and be so engaged was truly a treat. The students' visit to the Ball Park last year was also fun. They had a chance to tour the Hall Of Fame and watch a ballgame. They are just a great group of kids from Newport Primary, and Ms. Ryder is a gem for allowing us into her classroom and sharing the kids with us, as well as including us in their day.
