Several classes converged on the library at 12:00 EST to view Barack Obama take the oath of office as President of the United States on January 20, 2009. Although our district had live streaming available, we chose to use the big screen TV. Shown are Mrs. Bryant and Mrs. Baldwin's classes. Mrs. Ebrahim, our 5th grade counselor, watches too.
We also wrote letters to the new president during library classes that day. These were mailed on Wednesday. Will be interested to see what sort of response we get. I do know one thing....we all need to use CONGRATULATIONS as a spelling word!
