What have our students been up to?

5th Grade:
How are recess, bullying, air pollution and gender equality related? These are the issues 5th Grade EAL students wrote about in their letters to President Obama. They chose an issue that was important to them and gave some thoughtful solutions that the President hopefully will consider! We will be sending our letters to the White House this week 😀

During their leadership unit, 5th-grade EAL students chose leaders from Dwight that they wanted to learn more about. They wrote questions and scheduled their own interview times. Students prepared and practiced so much, that on the day of their interview, they were confident and ready for the challenge! To find out more about some familiar leaders at Dwight, read their final newsletters here!
