Yesterday we talked about the extensive flood damage at the Magic Carpet Preschool and the extraordinary lengths teachers, parents, alumni, and friends went to rebuild and restock supplies at the school. Well, today is a happy day: Students showed up this morning for their first day back to the Barton Street location. Our photographer, Bob Rush, was on the scene to see the smiling faces and happy reunions in the beautifully refurbished school. We are sure there are going to be many new preschool memories made with Miss Penny and her staff. And looking at the photos of the children in their once nearly destroyed school leaves us all with only one word: hope.
