So pleased to be able to offer curriculum-based programming for @LDCSB & @TVDSB area grade schools, home schools and even secondary classes from @tdsb this past month. Looking forward to future class visits.
On Monday, Mrs. Capaldi's class enjoyed a day at the Ingersoll Agricultural Cheese & School Museum. They learned about school, farming and cheese and butter making in the early 1900s. Thank you to Mr. Gillies, Schoolmarm Mrs. B., Monica and Anna. @LDCSB @KellyHolbrough

Day 2 #MuseumWeek #creatorMW theme: The NOXON Company in @TownIngersoll (1860s-1916) were creators of clever marketing. The family name is a palindrome and an ambigram - can be read forwards, backwards & upside down. Tagline: "No matter how you look at it Noxon spells quality"
