Gov. Cuomo Meets With 4th Graders

After spending the year learning about New York State’s rich history, Hagan Elementary School’s 4th grade students had the opportunity to visit the Capitol in Albany on May 28. The classes of Mrs. Burlingame, Ms. Gabel, Mrs. Wishrad, Mrs. Darcy, Mr. Alnwick, and Mr. Weisner took a tour of the Capitol, and to their surprise Governor Andrew Cuomo himself greeted the children and took time to speak to the students about their visit!
