Pleasant Union Elementary School
A Lt. Colonel with the United States Marines, Nick Slavik stopped by Pleasant Union Elementary for a surprise visit. He is stationed in Afghanistan and has been penpals with Ms. Bacon’s second grade class. The class enjoyed writing and receiving letters from this brave, active soldier.
Lt. Colonel Slavik made a surprise visit to the school while he was in the U.S. on a two week leave. The children were so surprised and excited to finally meet Lt. Col. Slavik. He answered questions, told the class about all the places he’d visited and presented the class with a flag that was flown at his base in Afghanistan. It was a wonderful and memorable learning experience for everyone.
