Mrs. Fox’s second grade class at Del Valle Elementary School practiced civic engagement by writing letters to Mr. Donald J. Trump, President Elect, on his win during the November elections. All of the students in Mrs. Fox’s class wrote their letters to Mr. Trump before Winter Break in hopes that they would receive their letters before he takes office on January 20, 2017. To the students’ surprise, when they arrived back to school on January 3, Mr. Trump had sent a response to the class. This was a monumental moment for the students, as it taught them that their voices can be heard far and wide, and by important people, if they are brave enough to reach out. Mrs. Fox is helping to create the next generation of rising leaders that will graduate from Del Valle ISD.
