In honor of Read Across America

March 3rd-March 7th, Mrs. Wolf and Miss Altamirano’s Language Arts’ Class shared Biography Reports.  The students worked hard at home preparing reports and presentations.   They came in dressed as their characters with props and posters to best represent the person.  We met Abraham Lincoln, Elton John, Walt Disney, and many more!
