First grade had two special visitors on Thursday, November 9, 2017. Clint Newton (Army) and Cliff Faircloth (Navy) are military veterans. Each brought in photographs and military clothing for the students to see. They also answered questions the students had. The first graders had a great time meeting the “heroes” and even learned how to salute. First grader, Sarai Garcia said when she sees a military person she will say, “Thank you for making me safe.” First Grade teachers said they believed it was important for their students to understand why we had the Friday before Veteran's Day (on Saturday)as a holiday from school.
