Service Learning - Tour of Norton

Here are some photos from the recent service-learning project we completed with the L.G. Nourse School. I had 6 students complete the project with approximately 60 3rd graders from the Nourse. Thanks to the entire staff over at L.G. for making the trip a success. (and thanks to mother nature for the great weather we had!)

Freedom Trail

Its that time of year already! As I stated earlier, I really think this school year has gone by quickly. With the end of the year comes one of my favorite trips to the Freedom Trail in Boston. I still remember walking the trail when I was a high school student. It really is neat to have so much local history within driving distance. Being one of the oldest cities in America means that Boston is loaded with historical places. I think everyone should walk the Freedom Trail at least once to appreciate the many heroes which helped establish our nation.

Our tour this year went really well. Despite cloudy skies, the rain held off for us. The tour guides were enthusiastic and presented many interesting facts. I learn something new every year. Thanks to Mrs. Young and Ms. Mays for coming along to help out.

Here are some photos from our day...
