Writing connected to the study.


From one of our second grade parents: “Let’s hear it for our shark train museum builders – what!!! Amazing gift shop, train museum tour guides, 1904 train ride simulation with announcers and conductor, trains of the future, train library, abandoned station bounce-o-Rama remake, Franklin S train station model, train graffiti stop and so much more!!!

Now, that’s an inquiry project.”
