Three- and 4-year-old children attending St. John's Cooperative Nursery School recently received a visit from Snoopy, the school's mascot. The children prepared for him by learning "dog songs," "dog crafts" and other fun activities relating to their favorite beagle.

This year, Snoopy brought something special for each of the 121 nursery school children: a custom-made T-shirt embossed with the school name and the names of every student.
