Did you know that Gutzon Borglum was born today in 1867?  He was an artist and sculptor, best known for creating the gigantic sculpture at Mount Rushmore in South Dakota.  The four presidents featured in the sculpture are George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln.  The heads are about 60 feet (almost 2 school busses) tall!  400 people worked on the sculpture from 1927 to 1941 using dynamite, drills, hammers, and chisels to cut away and smooth the rock.

We hope that you have a monumental day at school.  Remember to think kind thoughts, use kind words, and do kind things.  We Love You!
