It's a great place!

The children take Prince Pierre outside where he inspects the construction taking place on the site of the school's new gym.
Things are looking good here at Mixon!


The children took Pierre to visit "Learn-a-lot Lane" where the First Grade rooms are. It was a fun place to "Learn-a-lot!" All the rooms are decorated in a fairy tale or fable theme...

Students show Prince Pierre the handprint dragon in the school's foyer. They have HUGE dragons here in Ozark!
Pierre doesn't have any that large in Connecticut ...

Prince Pierre found out later that this was not the best best to sit while flying in one of these helicopters! He said it wasn't like his old bi-plane that he travels around in. He did receive a wonderful helicopter pin for his cape to celibrate his visit to the museum . . . (click here)

Men of Flight Through the Ages


Prince Pierre meets "The King"... No! It's not Elvis! It's King Cotton, the King of the South. Pierre tried to pick some but found out it was back breaking work.... Something a Prince and/or a frog is not accustomed to. Someone did do a lot of picking as shown in these huge bales of cotton waiting to be taken to the cotton gin for processing.


Looking out over the fields, Pierre was told that this is called an Alabama Snowstorm . . . hmmm . . .


Prince Pierre had a wonderful visit in Ozark, Alabama!
He would like to thank his hosts at Mixon Elementary School,
Ms. Mikoda and Mrs. Weldon and her Second Grade Class.

I wonder where the Prince will be off to next?

Looks like....Tennessee
