Thank you so much for allowing us to take your kids to Jefferson City yesterday. We had a truly blessed day with great weather, well-behaved students, and wonderful chaperones. The tour guides this year at every location were the best I have ever had. These kids are so easy to be around, respectful, and interested in the world around them, that it makes our jobs pretty easy.
Spring schedules can be so busy. We still have a lot of learning and fun planned for the rest of the year and we look forward to finishing the year strong!
Below are the pictures from my phone. Mrs. Cluck will send hers along when she has the opportunity. I will caption most of them so you know what you are looking at.
Please be sure to follow the school banner for general announcements.
Have a blessed weekend!
Mrs. Murray and Mrs. Cluck

|This cell block was the prison's "prison". For the worst offenders. Our guide had been a guard for 32 years at this prison. Over and over again, he shared with the kids that this is NOT a place any ever want to be. Good lesson, I'd say.|
