What an amazing morning we had! I received many compliments from the actors regarding how attentive and well-behaved our class was at St. John’s Church. One remarked on how they loved our class saying the last lines of Patrick Henry’s speech with him! I wish all the parents could have been there to see how wonderful the students were. The chaperones and I were even treated to a “concert” on the bus ride!
Tomorrow is Patrick Henry’s speech at St. John’s Church. YAY!!! Students need to wear their class t-shirt or any yellow shirt. They do not need any extra snack or food. We will be going to the church and then coming right back. We will have our regular lunch at school.

Strawbridge Studios have put together special packages of pictures for your child. If you choose to buy any sheets, keep the ones you want and return the ones you don’t. If you choose to not purchase any sheets, then please return the entire package. Thank you!
Today, we had an electricity lesson from the Math Science Innovation Center. It was a wonderful hands-on lesson that included collaborative groups, computer technology, and electrical circuit building materials. It was a fabulous lesson and the students were excited and engaged. The MSIC conducts amazing classes on the weekends, such as coding, robotics, engineering, chemistry, etc. I highly recommend for all students! You can see the lessons on their website, www.mymsic.org.
