I want to say Happy Birthday to one of our best Presidents. I was disappointed when I talked to our 4th graders, who recently visited Mount Vernon, and only related how they enjoyed the new food court not anything about Washington's admirable traits. Washington was loyal, caring, honest, responsible, and trustworthy. He also has a few traits I wish I had - calm in the face of danger, brave, and courageous. Lets hope our students really did learn and make a positive connection to this wonderful role model (even if they only reported on the food court). I do hope the teachers helped the students make a connection to the character of this great hero.
