In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, our 3rd grade students had two special visitors come to share about their Mexican culture and current positions in the US Navy today. The students were highly engaged and had lots of wonderful questions for our guests!
Today Ms. Gallagher and Mr. Walsh's class visited the Memorial Art Gallery to culminate their arts integration unit on ancient Mesopotamia and Egypt! The students even got to check out a mummy! Ms. Drago and Ms. Cahill's class will visit tomorrow, and Ms. Wedderburn's class will check it out next week.
Today we welcomed Cleveland Willis of C. Willis Visuals (https://www.cwillisvisuals.com/about
