Presidents' Day - February 18, 2020


Two of the most important past Presidents of the
United States had birthdays in February, so we have
a holiday in February called Presidents' Day to
celebrate them and all other Presidents.

George Washington was our first President. 
He helped create our country, and he and his friends
made it so that citizens have a say in how the country
is run (we can choose leaders and change the rules). 
His birthday is on February 22nd.

Abraham Lincoln was our sixteenth President. 
He helped give African Americans the same rights as everyone else (he changed the rules). 
His birthday is on February 12th.

Happy Valentine's Day! - Friday, February 14th

Groundhog's Day

The History of Groundhog's Day - February 2nd

Groundhog's Day is celebrated in Canada and the United States
on February 2nd each year.  We watch our favorite
groundhog on this day.  If it is cloudy, he will come out of his burrow and tradition says, spring will start soon. 
If it is sunny, he will see his shadow and scoot back
into his burrow for six more weeks of winter sleep.

Winter Wonderland 2020



Wednesday, November 20: 
Education Support Professionals Day 

Education Support Professionals keep schools running and students safe, healthy and ready to learn.  Our Project Before Students sincerely appreciate Ms. JoAnn Lemerich, Mrs. Susan Marley,
Ms. Paige Nielsen, Mrs. Virginia Platon, Mrs. Fatima Rafhan &
Ms. Jasmin Rodriquez-Fernandez, our Paraprofessionals!

What If ?

Let’s suppose just for a moment, what if there weren’t any ESP 
What would become of our schools and where would education be 
If not for the dedication of each Education Support Professional 
How could our schools ever survive or even function at all  

For the bus driver wouldn’t be there to pick up children along the way 
The doors wouldn’t be unlocked, the lights on, or the buildings heated each day 
The aides wouldn’t be there to help those children with a special need 
Or the cooks wouldn’t have a hot and tasty meal ready for all to feed 

School security wouldn’t be there to watch over the children with care 
Each child’s records wouldn’t be the secretary’s load to bear 
The computers would crash without the technician to keep them up to date 
And not for the maintenance personnel, one can only guess the school’s fate 

And there are many more that give so much, each in a different capacity 
For to each ESP, education is far more than just another job or utility 
Education is each child’s future, the hope and prayers of our nation 
For that future, each day, ESP give their work, love, and dedication
