help others in need
who feels needed
who needs life
who fears dying
who loves country
who thinks faith in soldier
who believes in victory
By: Michael

Who feels gives them back up
Who needs lots of love when they’re anywhere
Who fears the lack of water and food
Who loves his family and country
Who thinks they’re going to win
Who believes in themselves and each other
By: John

A soldier is expected to do his job, help others, be kind to his comrades, and  protect his country.
Who feels scared for his family.
Who needs help after war.
Who fears for his country losing.
Who loves his country and his family.
Who thinks about winning.
Who believes that he will go home safely.
By: Levi

Maine State Museum

Hi families,

Just a reminder that we have our field trip tomorrow and will be gone most of the day.  We are leaving school at 8:40.  

Please remember to pack your child a lunch from home and pack an extra snack - lunch will be earlier than we are used to, so your child may want a snack for the ride back.

No electronics will be allowed, but your child may bring a book on the bus - keeping in mind that it is their responsibility to keep track of it.

I'm looking forward to seeing so many of you tomorrow!
