People of the Past and Present


by Stephanie Fuehrer

The 7th and 8th grade informational reading classes have again been hard at work reading about well known people, writing speeches, finding costumes, and making posters to showcase what they’ve learned about their person.  They had the opportunity to practice their presentations for the 5th and 6th graders this week in hopes of polishing their performance for the big night!  This annual event is all about walking into the famous people’s lives via a middle school student.  The money raised will help fund various programs at the middle school.
