Bonamici visits Head Start facility
A classroom of preschoolers at the Head Start facility near McBride Elementary School in St. Helens got a special visit Monday afternoon, May 6.
U.S. Rep. Suzanne Bonamici, a Democrat and longtime supporter of the federally funded Head Start program, and who also helped secure additional funding for the program in the 2018 omnibus spending bill, stopped by the school Monday to observe the educational program firsthand.
Many of the preschoolers flocked over to inquire about the congresswoman, or show her something they were playing with or working on, but then quickly dispersed to return to their activities. Bonamici sat down with many of the children and instructors to ask what they were working on in small groups around the room.
