Nate Masco added, "We have enjoyed going to many competitions over the past three years and we are thrilled to be able to compete at the World level. Thank you to Ms. Westfall and Mrs. Schwartz for being our coaches".
Read Across America at MSP
MSP's library had its annual Read Across America celebration on Thursday, March 2nd. NEA's Read Across America is a fun, celebratory way to promote the enjoyment of reading. It is a wonderful opportunity for students, teachers, librarians, administrators and parents to share the joys of reading aloud to each other.
Over 275 students in grades 6, 7, and 8 participated as readers or listeners. Teachers, administrators, and Plainville Public Library staff joined the celebration as well; reading aloud picture books, short stories and poetry. Mrs. White's 8th grade FACS classes provided beautifully and colorfully decorated cupcakes using this year's diversity theme of Dr.Seuss around the world.
The MSP library is very grateful for the generosity of Gnazzo's, which donated water and snacks for all readers and listeners. Additional thanks go to Snyders of Hanover which generously donated pretzels for all participants. Of course, thanks go to Mrs. Joyce Lynch, MSP Library Information Teacher, for coordinating the event each year.
