Sultana Heroes

Shared by Mrs. Gillum's and Ms. Pechan's 5th and 6th Grade Elementary Class

An incredible journey to new friends, explored cultures, and discovered heroes has led us this final destination. The world is a little cozier now that we feel closer to our international friends. We have been overwhelmed with the pictures, music, and gifts from other children. We are priviledged to share our heroes with you.
