President Obama's Speech

On September 9th, all middle school Social Studies classes got to watch President Obama's speech to schoolchildren. We had an opportunity to talk about the speech and each student picked out some of their favorte quotes - many of these are now hanging on the wall in the hallway. Here are some pictures of us watching the speech:

The 7th grade Language Arts classes are composing letters to President Obama letting him know we watched the speech, what they thought about the things he said, and showing him some pictures. We'll let you know if we hear back from him!
