In Ms. Emily’s PreK class – Lieutenant Tommy Cherry of Ladder 24 visited his son’s classroom at South Boston Catholic Academy. He was a special mystery reader, showed the children his fire gear and taught them all about fire safety.
Ms. Kristen’s and Ms. Molly’s PreK classes were joined by Mrs. Donavan’s and Ms. Rice’s Third Graders for Friday Afternoon Book Buddies! Both Third Grades are paired with a PreK partner to read books and play with them, too. Each week the Third Grade students are so excited to meet with and “teach” their Book Buddies in PreK about reading and the PreK students are so happy to see their Book Buddies.
In Ms. Samantha’s PreK class – Boston Police Officers, Allison Lane and Casey McDonough, from District 6 came to South Boston Catholic Academy and read stories and talked about safety.
