It has been an exciting week here at Green Meadow. With Election Day and our Veteran’s Day assembly we were quite busy.
In writing we worked on making holiday cards for soldiers who will be away from their families for the holiday season. The class put a lot of thought into what they wanted to say. We did an activity where I had the students visualize what it may be like for that soldier to read their words while they are away from home.
Election Day results at Green Meadow were quite different from the results of our nation’s election. Hillary Clinton won 54% of the popular vote while Donald Trump won 42%. The other 4% of votes went to candidates Jill Stein and Gary Johnson. The students enjoyed learning about this historical election and the voting process.
Next week we will begin our study of Native Americans. We will be looking for parent volunteers to come in and help us build longhouses on the morning on Monday, November 21st from 9:30 – 11:30. More information will be sent home next week on this exciting collaborative project.
Don’t forget that Thursday, November 17th is a half day of school. Teachers will be holding parent conferences that afternoon and evening. Have a great weekend!
