The Great-Grandson of Margaret Jenkins…

visited our class today!  He came to the school to join in the school’s ongoing celebrations for the Margaret Jenkins School centennial.  A highlight for Mr. Fred Simpson was enjoying the musical the school is putting on about the life of Margaret Jenkins!

In the class, the students acted as journalists, asking him what he know about his great-granny, but also about what he remembered about the past generally.  After all, they are gathering information about the last century for the EJMS history bog (see the link to it on the right sidebar) – and all those “older folks”, parents, grand-parents and possibly great-grandparents, can be sources of learning about the past too…

Keep an eye out on the History Blog to learn more about what Mr. Simpson shared. Kids in the class will be posting what they learned soon !
