Messages from abovePosted September 23, 2014
Spirits soar in Schodack September 19. Fourth graders at Green Meadow Elementary are hoping to make new friends, with messages to them from above! Students attached notes with their names on them to balloons, which they then watched float in to the sky. The children wrote down goals for their fourth-grade studies and attached those to the balloons, as well. They also included their addresses, in hopes that when the balloon comes back down, the person who finds it sends a letter back! View photos...
