To the editor: For the past four years, I have been interacting with the administrators and faculty at Jesse Mae Monroe Elementary in my capacity as chairman of the Nocha White American Legion Post 503 Auxiliary Americanism committee.
What an uplifting experience for my committee members and myself. We were welcomed with open arms when we described the patriotic programs we would like to bring to the students.
Most recently, we were invited to have a Veterans Day program in an assembly setting at the school.
I just returned from that program and once again the Jessie Mae Monroe team saw that the program ran like clockwork. With Nov. 16-22 being American Education Week, we want the wide readership of the Beacon to be aware of the outstanding job our local elementary school is doing.
In particular, we want to thank the administrators, teachers and staff—with special thanks to Fran Thomas, community
liaison—for all they do for our children and our communities each and every day.
