PRESIDENT'S DAY HOLIDAY

Just a reminder that there are no classes on Monday, February 15 in recognition of President's Day.


This holiday was officially created to celebrate George Washington's birthday, and was later recognized to honor both former presidents George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. It eventually became a day of remembering all American presidents.


Since there are no NGHE classes on President's Day, we hope that you can take the opportunity to educate your student(s) about our US presidents (and maybe even talk about who might be elected as our new president in November)!


Classes will resume on Monday, February 22.
