The Kids on the Block Puppet Troupe

Meet The Kids on the Block, a high school troupe of puppeteers who volunteer to perform for students in M-W elementary schools. This year’s volunteers include Kylie McCarron, Olivia Theokas, James Dawson, Matt Dovico, and Ashley Castillo. From bullying prevention and showing kindness, to explaining different learning styles and physical disabilities, the Kids on the Block puppets share important lessons in a way that entertains as much as they teach.

This week, the KOTB troupe visited first graders in Sapphire and Smith Clove. Over the course of the year, they plan to perform at all elementary schools, making a difference wherever they go. Watch for them, coming soon to a school near you!
