    Grade: 1
    As a first timer when it comes to wiki spaces and internet projects, I am looking forward to this experience. This project will be especially great because my military students may have been to some of the places that the box will have come from. Any ideas of how to add some activities into this project in my classroom for first graders? Let me know. I am drawing a complete blank! Thanks.

    Thaggard box #3 Calvary Day School Savannah, GA.
    Our school goes from Pre-K to 12th grade. We only did the classes in our lower school. There are 27 classes including our resource classes. Our principal is Mrs. Moore. Mrs. Kleinpeter has been teaching the longest.
    There are 24 classrooms at our school. Our FANTASTIC Principal is Mrs. Beverly Putnam. I am unsure who has taught at our school the longest. I attended this school when I was in elementary school and honestly there are not many of the "old timers" still there!

    Mrs. Chittenden has been teaching for 20 years she has been teaching Kindergarten - 4th grade. she is special because she forgets where everything is so we have to find it. Miss Thaggard's Second Graders Box #3 Calvary Day School Savannah, GA
    Miss Thaggard has been teaching for 25 years. She has been in second grade all 25 years. She is special because she teaches us and she has a rabbit that hops around our room.
    My school is Cherryville Elementary School. We are located in Cherryville, North Carolina. My name is Kelly Beam Brown and I have been teaching for 13 years. Our school is special because we are the only elementary school in Cherryville! Our school is part of the Gaston County School system-the 7th largest district in North Carolina.

    What makes your city special? Who is your mayor? Who is your Chief of Police?? Do you have any famous people living in your city or have lived in your city?
    Mrs. Chittenden's Perky Penguins Box#2 Hoover School, Schaumburg, IL Schaumburg is special because it has Septemberfest and it is located about 30 minutes away from Chicago, the Home of the White Sox and Cubs! It is a pretty big place and has a big shopping mall, Woodfield. We have a Village President, Al Larson. Our Director of Police is Richard S. Casler. We don't know about "famous people" but we all live here :-) Lots of famous people have come from the Chicago area.
    Miss Thaggard's second grade Box #3 Calvary Day School Savannah, Georgia
    Savannah is special because it is the oldest city in Georgia. James Ogelthorpe came from England and founded our city on February 12, 1733. We have many historic buildings in our city. People come from all over to visit our city. Our mayor is Otis Johnson. We will soon be getting a new police chief. The song "Jingle Bells" was written in Savannah. Johnny Mercer, a famous song writer, lived in Savannah. One of his songs, Moon River, was written about a river in Savannah.
