Experts in the Making


Fifth-grade students throughout the district are participating in the Be An Expert program. New this year, it asked all fifth-graders for their top area of interest and then recently supplied each student with a backpack full of books on that subject. In February, Sen. Hannon, who supplied grant monies that were used to purchase all the books, visited each fifth-grade class at Central Boulevard School to speak with the kids and assist in handing out the backpacks that contained the books for this program. Students will complete a culminating project in their area of interest and high school peers are planning to stop in and learn from the “experts” on their topics.
