Winthrop Grade School students in Mrs. Lucas' class under the direction of student teacher, Katherine Spahr, just finished their unit of study on informational texts. The fourth grade students presented their final report projects on topics of their choices to Winthrop High School students. This was a great experience for both the grade school and high school students that resulted in a very meaningful exchange of great information.
