Third Grade Learns about the History of Portage

      Every year 3rd grade learns about some of the history of Portage.  They learn that Portage began as a large forest of trees and people came to our area to cut them down. The students learned a little about the important hotels in town and where they were located (Mountain House, Portage House, Keystone Hotel, etc.)  Each student wrote a paragraph telling what they learned about Portage and then colored a poster that replicates the mural painted on the building beside the museum.  Winners were chosen from each homeroom for the coloring contest and Mrs. Huschak presented certificates to them this week.
