Lincoln Prairie Friday Update November 8
Our annual Grandparent’s Day event took place today and did not disappoint! Over 200 grandparents and other special people joined our students in their classrooms for various lessons, some involving the honoring of Veteran’s Day. Once again, this favorite tradition supplied us with opportunities to share our school and our day-to-day life with others! We loved having these honored guests with us today!
