Indianapolis 500 Princess
Kristy Delp

Room 10 Kindergarten gets a visit from a princess.  Early in May, Miss Delp’s kindergarten was visited by an Indianapolis 500 Princess.  Kathleen Jacobs was a senior at Purdue and was selected as one of 30 princesses from around the state.  She came to Mintonye to talk to the children about the Indianapolis 500 and race and made edible race cards with the class.  The class had many questions for the princess!  “Do you have a carriage?” asked Ella Greene.  “Do you have a castle?” asked Neela Graves.  Kathleen was able to talk about her duties as an Indianapolis 500 princess and let the children down easily when explaining that she doesn’t actually have a carriage or a castle!
