Dear Mr. President
Picture of the two students with their letter from President. picture of letter

EJE Tiger cubs, Ms. Elana Walters and Ms. Harley Thomas share not only a love for their school; they also share an appreciation for the current US President, Mr. Donald Trump. Last school year, they decided to write appreciation letters to the president in efforts to thank him for all he's doing for our nation and to encourage him to continue working hard. This week they shared the letters they received back from him with their classmates in Mrs. Brook’s 6th grade class.  During the summer break, they were excited to receive letters back from President Trump. The letters expressed his apprecation for their support and each included some extra special school supplies for them to use this new school year.
