December 15, 2017 - Bill of Rights Celebration

Sean Kelly, Marisa Darden, and Sarah Cleves celebrated the 226th birthday of the Bill of Rights with the fourth grade classes at Campus International School.  The students received a copy of the Bill of Rights, and Mr. Kelly and Ms. Darden explained how the Bill of Rights applies to their work.  We also had cake with the students.  Both the students and the teachers were engaged and seemed to love the event!
