Third-grade authors in Diane Ciappa’s class at Mills Pond Elementary School held a literacy celebration on June 13.

Invited guests joined the students in the school’s courtyard to listen to the personal memoirs they have been working diligently on for the past four weeks.

The third-graders created their own memoirs using literacy tools they learned throughout the year, such as personification, similes, strong leads, character setting, sensory details and more. They even created the illustrations to go along with their autobiographies.
In the classroom, guests saw a special performance as students recreated the book “The Great Kapok Tree” dressed as all the different animals in the rainforest.

Second-graders at Mills Pond Elementary School presented the play “Once Upon a Lily Pad” to family and friends on June 14. Dressed as alligators, egrets, snakes, frogs, turtles and lightning bugs, the students performed songs in between a lesson on why it’s always important to always listen to your parents. Since the production coincided with Flag Day, the second-graders ended their performance with a medley of patriotic songs including “I Love My Country,” “Grand Old Flag” and “Yankee Doodle.”
