Students in a Spanish class at Enfield Montessori School pose with a cardboard Pope Francis during “his” surprise visit to the school as the pontiff visits the United States.

The children asked questions in Spanish about the pope’s activities, place of birth, favorite foods and hopes for the world.

“I really liked practicing Spanish and learning about Pope Francis and all the things he is doing to help the world,” said Sandro Mocciolo, who is 10. (Photo submitted)
