Thanks to your donations, our Fourth grade classes got to learn about the Pony Express in a unique way. Each student had to switch "horses" at the swing stations (the orange cones) and switch riders and horses at the home stations (the chairs) from Sacramento to St. Joseph, Missouri and back to Sacramento. Due to the breeze, many horses kept wandering off, but it was a fun and educational event for all the 4th and 5th grade classes! Mrs. Thompson also taught roping. Mrs. Patten worked with kids to make butter, and Mrs. Hultgren taught students to do quill writing.
