Intermediate School Trip!

We spent some time Thursday on a tour of the Intermediate School! We got to meet Mr. Murphy, Mr. Bondy, some of the teachers and toured the whole school! Our final activity was meeting with some fourth grade students who shared books they had written for us. Their books were titled How to Survive Fourth Grade. This trip made us excited about going to fourth grade next year!!

Literacy Day

Literacy Day is about Middle Schoolers meeting up with Third Graders. The Middle Schoolers made books for their third grade buddy and the third graders read at least 1 chapter from the book they are reading to the Middle Schooler. At the end the third graders got a book that their Middle Schooler book buddy wrote. It was a TON of fun! By, Ben
