Jaime is my nine-year-old grand-daughter and she’s also a real firecracker! She’s a fourth-grader at the Essex Elementary School in Centerbrook, Connecticut.
The fourth, fifth and sixth-graders…a total of 250+ students…recently all submitted What Memorial Day Means To Me poems in competition. And guess who was #1???? That’s right…our own Jaime!
She did a professional job of reading her poem to the large crowd.
Here’s some photos…
Jaime really liked the Mardi Gras beads we brought her.

These students were part of the 500+ people in attendance.
The Essex Elementary School Band has 100+ members.

A very proud day for her, her parents and her Grandpa…That’s me!
Later it was time for a late afternoon baseball game…
