Kindergarteners enjoyed Popsicles in the Park at Merriman Park Elementary

The first day of school went relatively smoothly in Lake Highlands, if anything can go smoothly at temps above 100 degrees. To give their entering Kindergarteners a sneak peek of the year ahead, Merriman Park Elementary hosted Popsicles in the Park before classes began.
