We had Holland teachers come to see us last week. They are our Holland pen pals teachers. They were really nice, they gave us candies and cookies and we got little key chain wooden dutch shoes. We got to see a power point that the tech teacher made for us. We learned lots about Holland and about there wind mills. We had the dutch teachers and some of the people that work at district 16 too come and see Ethan's power point on Native culture. His power point was really good. We even got a song to sing and we tried to sing it in Dutch. We were pretty good at singing it in Dutch.
