Mrs. Eske's Team: Building Leaders

4th Grade Newsletter ******************** November 9-11

From the Desk of Mrs. Eske:

Dear Fourth Grade Families,


As this historic evening of the 2016 Presidential Election is drawing to a close... I hope that everyone who wished to do so, had an opportunity to exercise their right to vote!! It has certainly been a night of epic proportions and history in the making, regardless of the outcome.


In addition to Americans heading to the polls to elect the 45th President of the United States... Americans will also be honoring the incredible men and women who have served in our armed forces, and have so bravely fought to protect our freedom!!

We also thank those men and women who are currently serving in our military, and celebrate all of of our veterans on Friday, November 11th. To read more about Veteran's Day, click on this link.


Have a wonderful week, everyone!
