Community Helpers Are Our Friends

Our first grade students did an amazing job on their community helpers program today.  They taught us about what their favorite 15 helpers do for us.  Their speaking parts and songs were so great, and we had a great time watching them.  Thanks to Miss Robison, Mrs. Heaton and Mrs. Phelps for all their hard work!
