Celebrating Heroes

On Tuesday, March 9 the 4th and 5th graders honored their heroes with a Hero and Poetry Program. The students find a local hero. They write a letter to their hero inviting them to the celebration. The students write a biography of why they think the person is a hero. This is read during the program after which the hero is presented with an award designed by the students.
