Should Stores be Open on Thanksgiving?

Should stores be open on Thanksgiving? Should we shop on a day we typically spend with families? Is it okay to require workers to work on Thanksgiving? If they do, should they be paid overtime? All of these are questions students pondered while creating their PowToons today. Whether you choose to shop, or not, we wish you a happy Thanksgiving! Please enjoy our videos.

Late Night with Legendary Leaders

Challenge students, grades 1-5, took on the identities of Legendary Leaders throughout history on Tuesday, November 19th in the Edgar Murray Gym.  Parents and community members mingled with the Legends and asked them questions.  The guests then tried to guess the legends identities.  After mingling, the Legendary Leaders gave short speeches revealing their identities. The students did a fabulous job, and I'm proud of each and every one of them.
