Sometimes first-graders can hit the nail on the head.
Abby Foster, 7, a first-grader at Bergen Meadow Elementary, explained the essence of a recent program for parents about U.S. history as her class headed for rehearsal.
“We’re singing songs,” she said matter-of-factly. “We’re saying words in the microphone. We are giving speeches about how America grew and the people who helped it.”
She continued: “We worked really hard to memorize all this stuff.”
