Pleasant Hill students started Presidents' Day with a
celebration! They marched around the gym waving the flags they had
Twenty scouts from Cub Scout pack 423, with assistant Cub Master Tim
Moore, led everyone in the Pledge of Allegiance.
Two students from each class shared what they had done to prepare for
this day. They had gathered information on one patriotic symbol like
the flag, the White House, or the Liberty Bell. They learned some
interesting facts about one of the presidents.
Mr. Stinn read Arthur Meets the President by Marc Brown. Arthur and
his class visit the president after he wins an essay contest. "We can
all help make America great by helping others," he says.
Each day the rest of the week, a student from a different grade led
the school in the Pledge of Allegiance over the intercom: Bobby
Blosser (4th), Nichole Rader (3rd), Devan Stonebraker (2nd), and Alex
Cunningham (1st). The whole week was a celebration of patriotism.
