Mrs. Stuart's second grade class at Van R. Butler Elementary School recently participated in the 2016 Florida Chautauqua Assembly. This year's theme was "A Journey into America: Life since Leave it to Beaver." Mrs. Stuart's class won second place in the Chautauqua Assembly's People's Choice Awards. The class exhibit showcased the difference between segregation and integration. They really enjoyed researching and digging deeper into what life would have been like for game changers like Ruby Bridges, Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King Jr., and even Thurgood Marshall.
