State Representative Angie Chen Button asked for a student at Walnut Glen Academy to decorate an ornament to hang on the Christmas tree at the Capital building. Leah Dugger's design included wreaths and snowmen on the outside of the globe.Then on the inside, a wonderful Christmas scene of red, white and gold. It is a great honor that one of our WGA students was able to decorate an ornament to go on the Christmas tree at the state Capital. Congratulations Leah Dugger you did an amzing job!
Every year the U. S. Department of Education seeks out and celebrates great American schools that demonstrate all students can achieve to high levels.
