Book of Hope

This year my students came up with an outstanding service project.  They are creating a Book of Hope to be placed at the Ronald McDonald House for all families to enjoy.  The book will be filled with poems, songs, and fabulous art.  I am very pround of their creativity.  They are opening up this offer to fill the book to our blog world, so if you would like to add an entry please email it to Jules and me through the blog.
