Samuel Watson Elementary School

PARENTS AS PARTNERS

Grade 1 students have been working on a research project using non-fiction text.  The teachers invited parents in to work with their students on the creation of an oral presentation on the animal of their choosing.  Below are photos showing our parents working side-by-side and the final day of presentation. 

Thank you to the parents who participated!
