Thank you to ALL of our Veterans that serve our country!
Last week was a busy one with a visit from Henrico County firefighters to teach us about fire safety, along with animal project research and habitat construction. We owe a HUGE thank you to our 4th grade reading buddies that provided some assistance as well. Please click on the link to check out some photos below:
