5th Grade Freedom Walk

Submitted by brittany.neilson on Wed, 05/18/2022 - 13:55

Fifth grade students participated in the Freedom walk this past week. Members from various branches of the military came and told stories to the students. 

The Freedom Walk was first conceived by Legion member, Richard Johnson, as a way to help students have a better understanding and appreciation for military veterans. The new name of this Freedom Walk is now called the Dr. Richard Johnson Memorial Freedom Walk in his honor.  This “walk” is unlike any other event organized by the Legion according to the veterans.

Miss Russell’s class had a “reel” lot of fun fishing at Salem Pond! Students got to catch a fish in the pond, and watch the cleaning process for the fish to come home. What a great way to spend a sunny Tuesday! #letsgrowtogether #canyonelementary
