History ROCKS!

Mrs. Walenius’ 4th grade class held a red carpet event on Friday.  Students presented awards to famous Virginians. Each student selected their recipient, researched their impact on history, and detailed their contributions.  Students then presented their self-designed award in honor of  the famous Virginian.  Recipients included:  Booker T. Washington, Ben Franklin, Ulysses S. Grant, Patrick Henry, Henry “Light-Horse Harry” Lee, and Maggie L. Walker.  It is obvious that these children are no strangers to the stage and are skilled in front of a crowd 🙂  I am certain that more red carpet opportunities are in their future! -cg
