Kindergartners in Mary Jo Graffagnino’s class at the Elementary School paired up with their fifth-grade buddies in Deirdre McIntee’s class at Memorial Grade School to share their nonfiction writing assignments on April 27.

The kindergartners were excited to share the fantasy stories they developed with the fifth-graders, showing off their writing skills while also spending time learning from the older students. The fifth-graders were equally excited to see the improvements their young buddies made since the two classes came together earlier in the school year to work on reading skills.
