Linn Grove Elementary Sends a Thank You!

by on November 19, 2010


This fall Linn Grove Elementary 4th graders were notified that their annual school field trip to the Hoover Presidential Library had to be canceled. So…Docent Sue and Education Specialist Mary hopped into their cars and drove to Marion, Iowa to talk to the students.  We were impressed with their knowledge of President Hoover and the quality of their questions. The 1st question asked went something like this, “What was the Great Depression and why was Hoover  blamed for it?” WOW!!  Every student had prepared a great question! The 4th graders were polite and attentive and we were there on the day of the school’s Halloween Party!  Both Sue and I have taught for over thirty years and know how exciting school celebrations are, but these 4th graders went above and beyond to make us feel welcome.

Dear Mary,
Thank you for coming to us at Linn Grove Elementary! You told us very interesting information. We needed that information. We thought he (President Hoover) was interesting. We hope we can save enough money to go on a field trip to the Herbert Hoover Museum. We hope you come again soon!

We just wanted to thank you for coming to our classroom, and giving a wonderful presentation! We all enjoyed it very much! Thank you for answering our questions, and helping us learn more about Herbert Hoover, and his museum. We’re so glad we got the privilege to do that!

Thank you for coming to share about Herbert Hoover that was nice of you to come. I don’t know how much we could thank you. The thing I liked the best was the story about puppies sliding across the floor.

Our class just wanted to thank you for coming in and sharing about Lou and Herbert Hoover. Thanks for giving us that information. That was very nice of the museum/library. I feel sad for Lou how she died.
