Ronald McDonald visited the first-grade classes at Holy Ghost Catholic School in Hammond on Sept. 2, and presented his new program, “A Friendship Adventure with Ronald McDonald.”

During this show, McDonald was on a quest to help students lead happy, active lives, a news release from the school said. Mixed with humor and audience participation, the show was about friendship, cooperation, anti-bullying, good manners and active play. McDonald kept the students engaged and entertained throughout his performance, the release said.
