Glenn O. Swing Elementary had many Cultural Celebration presentations this past week. They included:
Sarah Goode - all 5th grade classes
Sarah Goode was the first African American woman to apply for and receive a US patent for her invention, the cabinet bed. A cabinet bet served as a writing desk during the day, and folded out into a full size bed when needed.
Ellen Ochoa- Ms. Burwinkle and Ms. Mitchell’s Kindergarten classes
Ellen Ochoa was the first Latina woman in space. She has logged over 978 hours in space. Ochoa is also a classical flutist and played with the Stanford Symphony Orchestra.
