Our annual Fourth Class Heritage Day took place this morning. Students and their parents gathered in the White Center, where students created a Lewis and Clark timeline and performed a Lewis and Clark rap song. Groups then fanned out to various places to draw silhouettes, make covered wagons, read favorite chapters of Lewis and Clark and Me, listen to Mrs. Matcalf read You Wouldn’t Want to be an American Pioneer!, and enjoy flapjacks and root beer courtesy of Sister Glavin and Mrs. Renken. What a fun morning! Thanks to all who took part in bringing to life the customs of long-ago.
Thanks to everyone who dropped off items for Country Fair on Collection Day! We will continue to accept donations through Oct. 7. We’re looking forward to a wonderful Fair!
Thursday, Sept. 29, is Country Fair Collection Day. Donations of bottles for the Alumni Bottle Booth, as well as items for the Treasure Chest and Marketplace, will be collected during morning carpool. Thanks, all, for your generosity!
We are excited for a new year of discovery and joy!
