In honor of John Winthrop’s 424th birthday I’ve challenged all students to do a bit of research this weekend to learn more about our school namesake!  Mrs. Z’s and Ms. Mazzei’s kindergarten classes got a jump-start and  kicked off the challenge last night, and were our resident experts today!

This is an optional task for students, but as a school community next week we’ll be collecting facts, sharing with other classes and grades, and creating a public display of all we’ve learned.

All students were given a bright orange reminder sheet (white handout in K) outlining the parameters.  Students in grades 3, 4, and 5 were asked to show responsibility and maturity in leaving the easy facts for our primary students, and truly researching unique, detailed, information about Governor Winthrop.  I know they’ll impress us!
