Trip to the Haverford Post Office

Preschool made special Valentine cards for their parents a couple of weeks ago and had planned to mail them at the post office. They had to postpone their trip because of the snow. Today they were joined by a few parents and made the trip to the Haverford Post Office to mail their letters. Once they arrived at the post office they put stamps on their envelopes and Karen, the postal worker, helped the students put them in the mailbox. They also got a special behind the scenes tour of the post office. Their parents will receive a nice surprise in a day or two.
