3rd Grade Presents "A Day at the Museum"
Posted 04/10/2014 11:29PM
Hammond 3rd Graders presented "A Day at the Museum", an entertaining wrap-up to their year-long study of South Carolina ... from the mountains to the sea and from the earliest colonists to the most recent.  This original program included songs about South Carolina, characters unique to the State and her history, lots of smiles, and plenty of laughs.  The 3rd grade was successful in transporting us back in time to South Carolina's earliest days and introducing us to the many people so integral to the State's history.  Kudos to some of our youngest South Carolinians!
