President’s Day is usually just a ‘vacation day’, a day that we don’t have school. But it should be more than that though. President’s Day is rich with history and the founders of this country. I take it upon myself to make sure I emphasize the importance of President’s Day in the Classroom by doing President’s Day activities.
