Mrs. Renee Shurling’s  4th grade had a fantastic visit to our State’s Capitol and met Governor Deal and Representative Jackson! Mrs. Shurling’s  class has spent several weeks learning about the state of Georgia . They have learned about the landforms, government, history, and climate.  What a wonderful day!
