Well Appreciated Praise for the Kids on the Block
EEA recently received an email from an Edmonton Public School about the
 effectiveness of our free Kids on the Block Puppet Presentations.
  We thought we would share their comments with you.

"Last year, we had a puppet show from your team at our school. I need to
pass along some extra feedback for you.  A kid in our Kindergarten class had
a seizure during class time.  All of the students knew what to do!  Kids pushed back the tables for this student, gave him space, told the teachers he was having a seizure
and we needed to call for help, etc.  The students then took themselves to the carpet and  sat quietly waiting for further instructions. They did all this seamlessly because

 they had learned from the puppet show.  Thanks for your support with this
and the kids truly learned and used what they knew!
