Meet Mr. Lincoln

On Friday, during their US History class, 7th and 8th graders were treated to a presentation by "President" Lincoln, as played by Mr. Dennis Boggs. It was engaging, informative, and also communicated the message to students that they can change them world by becoming the best they can be. We appreciate the local chapter of the National Society of Colonial Dames for bringing this opportunity to GRMS. You may learn more about Mr. Boggs at this link: http://www.meetmrlincoln.com/
