8th graders and kindergartners spend morning imagining and playing together.
Shattuck-St. Mary’s eighth grade class and teachers hosted Cannon River STEM School’s kindergartners for a morning on campus on Thursday, May 7. This event was the culmination of a year-long partnership between Shattuck-St. Mary’s and Cannon River STEM School. On a monthly basis, the 8th graders visited Cannon River STEM School’s two kindergarten classes to work with students on reading and math skills.
The visit to Shattuck-St. Mary’s was an opportunity to share the wonders of the School’s weCreate Center where they could imagine and build a prototype of “the coolest playground ever” as well as play interactive games in the gym. Of course, there was snack time and an outdoor group photo.
The plans are to continue the partnership as there are great benefits to the older and younger students in working together. “It was a pleasure to host these inquisitive, imaginative youngsters to our campus! We are already making plans for next year’s visit,” said Beth Trout, Shattuck-St. Mary’s Middle School Director. “We value our relationship with the Cannon River STEM School.”
