Preparation for Tuesday

Students this past week were treated to a new book written by Jonah Winter titled Barack. This picture book tells the story of how Barack Obama's journey began. From a little boy who lived in Indonesia with his mother and step-father, to being raised by his grandparents in Hawaii, to moving to Chicago and securing a seat in the Illinois State Senate. From there Barack continued his career in politics by being elected to the U. S. Senate and winning the Democratic nomination for president. He was elected president in November of 2008. His journey will continue as he will be inaugurated on Tuesday, January 20th. Many activities are planned for Tuesday to celebrate this special day.
Book order forms for Kevin O'Malley books were due on Friday. A few extra copies of his books will be ordered and be available on a first come first serve basis.
