This morning at LNES our third graders hosted their grandparents at the yearly Grandparent breakfast. Little did we know that two people would be together again after almost 70 years of seeing each other and being in the same elementary classroom when they were 11 years old!! The question was asked by a grandson to his grandfather, "Who was your favorite teacher?" His grandfather's response was Mrs. Queer. Someone heard this response and asked another grandparent who was sitting nearby about her favorite teacher who was also Mrs. Queer. Long story short, they realized that they had been classmates long ago in Hellertown in Mrs. May Queer's class. They hugged and hugged and hugged each other! Isn't it amazing how life can bring us all together for moments that we cannot plan or predict! Kudos to our third-grade teachers, PTA volunteers and our fantastic third-grade students for providing a fun-filled morning and creating life-long memories for so many people!

TOGETHER WE CAN CHANGE THE WORLD!

Mrs. Brodhead's Kindergarten Class learns and grows together. We are kind, caring, and supportive of each other! Together our class created ways in which kids can help change the world. As a group project students created this iMovie! Great Job, Kindergarten Kids!

June 14 Flag Day

"American Flag"

by Erin Ryan

 

Red and white with thirteen stripes, Reminds us of our past;

The colonies so long ago, Some thought they'd never last.

And then the stars, although they've changed, For the states, both old and new,

On a field of blue they're fifty strong, A home for me and you.

So wave your flag, And show your pride and never let it fall;

And remember why we pledge each day with liberty and justice for all.

Happy Father's Day!

Celebrate on Sunday, June 17th!
