"Set Sail on a Voyage of Learning!"

Labor Day Holiday - Monday, September 7th

How will you celebrate your Labor Day weekend? Observed on the first Monday in September, Labor Day pays tribute to the contributions and achievements of American workers. It was created by the labor movement in the late 19th century and constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country. Labor Day symbolizes the end of summer for many Americans, and is celebrated with parties, parades and athletic events. I'd love to see pictures of how you and your family & friends spent this holiday weekend!
