Country Meadows first graders are guests at the Inaugural Ball

District 96 Country Meadows first graders in Long Grove culminated their study of American symbols as guests at the Inaugural Ball.

Couples were announced as they entered the gym and then the box stepping and waltzing began.

Music teacher Jesse Rathgeber, physical education teachers Holly Smith and Kathy Nihill, and first-grade teachers Mary Fey, Meg Larson, Griselda Perales, and Lindsay Stanton collaborated to present the unit and the gala. Pictured in the foreground are first graders Kaitlyn Blechman and Zachary Hertzberg.
