Did you know?
Did you know that Mrs. Glass is trying to get MORE technology for our classroom??? Right now, TODAY, there is a grant out there waiting to be funded. .What's a grant? (we discussed this in class this week (Jan. 7-11)) A grant is free money or materials that is funded by an organization or the government that doesn't have to be repaid. For this opportunity, Mrs. Glass needs your help! Have your parents to click on the link (the picture of DonorChoose.org) to learn more about the project and have them to send this information to everyone they know! If they (EVERYONE) donates any amount of money over the few days, the amount will be doubled!!! Act Fast and we all (your teacher and yourself can have more fun in our classroom!
STUDENTS WROTE LETTERS TO OUR 'POTUS'
The students discussed the upcoming elections by learning about the branches of government. While exploring the executive branch, the discussion lead to students discussing all members of the U.S. Executive Branch (which includes the President and his cabinet).
For homework, all students were to write a letter to the President of the United States (POTUS) and write about an issue they would like him to address and a solution that he could use to solve that problem. Mrs. Glass mailed the letters to the White House and we are all hoping we get a response!
UPDATE: On March 12, 2013, The POTUS replied to the students' letters by writing our class a letter in response. Read his letter and view the artifacts he sent to our community!
