In February when we present the Patriotic Program,
we also have Presidents Day. Each student chooses a different
president for his/her report. A poster is made which includes the report,
a freehand drawing of the president made by the student, and other visuals
to make an interesting poster. On the appointed day each one comes to school
dressed as the president or the wife of the chosen president. After chapel,
we have a short program where the children go to the mike and tell who they
represent, and some interesting facts about the presidents.
