Peanuts, Bernie Brewer, and the Racing Sausages!

On Tuesday, January 31st, we had a surprise assembly for the students at the end of the day.  To the students shock there were 3 major television networks, a local newspaper, and a Brewer's executive (Rick Schlesinger the Brewers COO) in our gymnasium. Not to mention, Bernie Brewers and the Racing Sausages eventually made an appearance!
The background to the assembly starts with a 5th grade student who wrote to the Brewer's about not having a peanut-free section available.  He and his brother are allergic and haven't been able to attend a Brewer game since 2006.  In TAG class this boy and other students were writing letters to try and "make a difference".  The 5th grader's letter was so well written that Rick Schlesinger took notice and decided to pay our school a visit.  Read the full article here.
