The 2nd grade class would like to thank everyone who participated in our service learning project. With your generous donations to be out of uniform on Tuesday, we raised $531 to be given to the statue of General Thomas. Mr. Bob Heil visited the class today to show them pictures and tell them more about General Thomas and the statue. The final statue will be placed at the entrance in the fort next Memorial Day weekend 2020. Thank you again for all of your support.
