Thomas Jefferson Visits Central Lyon

If you could ask one of our country's Founding Fathers anything you wanted, what would you ask them?  The Central Lyon 5th graders had that opportunity on Wednesday, April 25th.  Thomas Jefferson (who also goes by the name David Best) visited our classroom to teach our students more about Thomas Jefferson's life and give us a unique, one of a kind experience.  Students listened as he told them about his life, how he wrote Declaration of Independence, and about his 2 terms as president.  The 5th graders asked some great questions and even convinced Mr. Jefferson to take a selfie with our class.
