This morning, each sixth grader recited the Gettysburg Address as part of the Civil War unit in social studies. Students had a week to prepare the speech and gather some props to take on the persona of Abraham Lincoln (think black top hat, beard, and black coat!). They gave their speeches in the Rendell Library in front of their classmates.

Tenacre students are participating in a “Decades Grub Day” today. Everyone was encouraged to dress up in fashion from the 60’s, 70’s or 80’s. To have the privilege of dressing down, students brought in canned goods to be donated to A Place to Turn, a food pantry in Natick. Proceeds from the bake sale are going to Birthday Wishes, an organization that provides birthday parties for homeless children in Massachusetts.
