"We are finishing up our 30 Book Challenge and trying to read lots about people and Famous Missourians so we can pick a good one for the project we're doing."  -Sam

"We are learning about Missouri Government since we have been back from our trip to Jefferson City.  We are working on our project in class that we will have on our desks at the art show.  The ice cream was my favorite part about Jeff. City!" -Maddie
