Submitted by julia.murray on Tue, 03/22/2016 - 13:46

The 6th grade had quite a surprise this week when Matt Meese of Studio C came to talk with them.  He answered qestions about the show, favorite characters, how they come up with skits and other things.  By the way, his favorite characters to play are "Scott Sterling" and "The Shoulder Angel".  Matt does not usually talk to schools, but we were lucky enough to have his friend, Sabrina Fullmer, as a practicum student in Mrs. Makin's class. He came to us as a friendly favor for her.  THANKS MISS FULLMER!!!!!
