Hi Parents,

We had a wonderful time celebrating our Veteran’s last week. It was so special to have Veteran’s from our school’s families come to share.

We will not have any homework this week due to the winner of our mock election’s platform. I will be sending home a reading log though. The kids elected George McGuinea. In addition to learning about the election and voting process last week, they also have no homework, 10 minutes of extra recess on day, and pajama day one day. It was a great hands on learning experience.
