Catherine Fowler Visits the Library

Mrs. Fowler spoke to our third grade students on Monday and Tuesday. Her "History of Frisco" presentation is so interesting and informative! Students learned about Native Americans in Texas, pioneers, cattle drives, farmers, and how Frisco became a city. I wish everyone in Frisco could hear her speak on these subjects because I know I learned a lot! Mrs. Fowler is truly a treasure. I am so glad for our students to have the opportunity to meet her so they can remember this experience when they go to Fowler Middle School.
