November History

For the month of November, we are going to study about the history behind Veteran's Day, hold our own "elections", and talk some turkey about the Pilgrims and Thanksgiving. If you know of any Veterans, please feel free to bring a picture of them to class and maybe tell us a little bit about them and what they mean to you.

November 5 is Election Day!

Tuesday November 5th is Election Day. We will be holding our class elections so please come prepared to cast your ballot for our own class government. Remember that you do make a difference so get out and vote.
