A Lesson In Family History

marvin-meis-with-mrsMrs. Starman’s 3rd and 4th grade class at St. Boniface Elementary in Elgin spent last week learning about “artifacts”. Students were asked to bring one item that was important to their family’s history. Students brought in a wide range of items from a pen made from the wood of a tree that grew at their great grandpa’s farm to their great grandmother’s china. Brooklyn Meis invited her Grandpa Marvin Meis to be her artifact. He came to school in his military uniform and shared with the students about his service in Vietnam. The students learned about the importance of family history and learned a little more about each other. Photo submitted
