Greenwood 1st Grade Famous Americans Celebration, April 24th
Thomas Jefferson, statesman. George Washington, the Father of our Country. Mark Twain, humorist. Greenwood First Graders, PRICELESS!!!!!
After kicking off the GLS 1st Grade Famous Americans Celebration as the Statute of Liberty, Adesola made a quick costume change to become Elizabeth Blackwell.
This was a great event, Mrs. Hammerschmidt.
“The Show Must Go On.” Abraham Lincoln was a bit under the weather, but like a true trooper, he insisted on completing the performance. Well done.
