Pre-kindergarteners saw several special visitors during Pre-K Week Oct. 5-9.

State Sen. Butch Miller, R-Gainesville, read to students at Academy Child Development Center and E.E. Butler Head Start.

“Pre-K Week provides a great opportunity for us, as legislators, to submerge ourselves into the Pre-K programs across the state and witness the extraordinary educational foundation these programs provide for Georgia’s youngest learners,” Miller said in a news release.

Employees from Milton Martin Honda, where Miller is general manager, also visited local schools.

Agriculture Gary Black read to students at New Holland Knowledge Academy pre-K.

State Rep. Emory Dunahoo, R-Gainesville, visited a local school, as well.

The politicians were among 135 state officials who visited some of the approximately 3,800 Pre-K classrooms located across Georgia.
