Gunnar Henderson is the winner of our Preamble Challenge. Great job Gunnar!!
We will be celebrating Constitution Day this year with our first annual Preamble Speaking Challenge! Students will compete during lunch for the number 1 speaker in their grade levels (having already memorized the Preamble to the Constitution). Tomorrow morning, the winners of the grade level competition will compete on the morning announcements. All voting will take place in homerooms right after announcements.
You can see students participate and follow via Twitter!
In addition to our Preamble Challenge, I invite all students and staff to participate in a live broadcast of a tour of the National Archives beginning at 1:00 tomorrow afternoon. I will be showing this over the TV's as well as documenting it for later educational use.
You can also participate and follow via Twitter!
