Bow-Wow! Imagine my surprise when the team from CREC (Capital Region Education Counsel) in Hartford, CT emailed me an article from the Rocky Hill Life magazine that was all about my Team Schmitty The Weather Dog visit to the CREC Academy of Aerospace & Engineering Elementary School in Rocky Hill, CT.  It was such a PAWSOME article. I was blushing through my fur! Arf-Arf!

In October, we brought my Schmitty The Weather Dog Weather/Science Assembly to 3 CREC schools in the Hartford, CT area – The CREC Ana Grace Academy of the Arts Elementary Magnet School, The CREC Discovery Academy, and as mentioned above, the CREC Academy of Aerospace & Engineering Elementary School.  Here’s a few fun pics of my visits:
