Mrs. Brueggemann's Class and the rest of Kindergarten celebrated the letter P yesterday with Popsicles in the Park!
Mrs. Runyon’s 6th grade Social Studies classes had been studying Ancient Rome and when discussing Roman citizenship and how not everyone who lived in Rome was a citizen; a discussion arose of what it takes to be a U.S. citizen. Mrs. Runyon's students were interested in hearing from someone who had been through the U.S. Citizenship process. Mrs. Runyon's friend, Frieda Ferguson, came to speak to the 6th grade classes earlier this week.
Mrs. Ferguson was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil. After coming to the U.S during her teenage years and then again years later for a Master's Degree and meeting her husband, she decided to become a citzen of the country she had grown to love.
She talked to the students about the country of Brazil and its structure and customs as well as the citizenship process.
Thank you to Mrs. Ferguson for helping to expand our students horizons!
