Our 5th grade students recently celebrated the Annual Eloquence Day with a dining experience at Boatwerks in Holland. Students enjoyed a gourmet dinner with all the trimmings and had an opportunity to practice their manners. We wanted to say thank you to all the teachers, parents, and community members who helped make this annual event another huge success. We also wanted express our appreciation to our community partners who made this event possible. Please consider supporting them and their businesses as they have supported our kids!
