Several grade levels at Montpelier Elementary have been learning about Johnny Appleseed with his birthday being on September 26th. Teachers thought it seemed smart to invite him (portrayed by Elementary Principal Lance Thorp) in to discuss what his life was like and the role he played in planting so many apple trees across many parts of the United States. Johnny visited classrooms, read a story to the students, gave everyone an apple, and told his many stories! Kids loved their time with Johnny and learned so much.
