 ,Dear Friends

We are a private school in Anniston, Alabama. We have 35 in the whole school. We have 10 pupils in our class.Our school has gradesK-12.Talladega Speedway is about 20 miles from us. Cheaha mountain is a beautiful place and it is about 20 minutes away.We rarely see snow. Gulf Shores is a popular beach in Alabama. We have the University of Alabamatwo hours away,and  Jacksonville State University is about 20 minutes from us.

 The cartoon character ,Popeye ,was created a few miles away  in the town of Ohatchee.The most beatiful place in Alabama in my opinion would have to be Little Greek Canyon falls. It's a long drive though.

Come see us sometime! Your new friends: Mrs. King's class, Cornerstone Academy
