I'd be very careful about introducing her to other dogs, unless you're 100% sure they're great with puppies. Not all dogs are. A bad experience at this age could have lasting effects, so I don't know if I'd risk it. As paigedanielle mentioned, it could be overwhelming.

Socialization needs to be a positive experience, and being swarmed by a bunch of kids might not be a bit much for a young puppy. If you decide to take her anyway, please bring a crate and be prepared to crate her in a quiet room for at least part of the time.
