On Friday 10/3 sixteen of Tim Arnold's year fives went to Johnston Elementary School to work with Lisa Reagan's third grade class on a project. Fifth year's created a pamphlet focusing on ways to be active and engaged citizens in my civics class. Then they helped Lisa's third grade class design one focusing on how to be an active and engaged citizen in your classroom, school, and community. The project went very well with 16 pamphlets completed and many new friends made.
