    We are  Thankful for Our School Community 

    The students are working extremely hard, and have adjusted to the new school year.  We will be very busy this month.  We will be traveling to the Southeast Region.  While visiting this region, we will explore the mountain ranges and rolling hills.  We will also spend a day in the life of a coal miner.  As we move along, we will discover the Cherokee language, and visit Colonial Williamsburg.  We will end our journey, discussing the Civil Right's Movement.
