Troy School students thank Sen. Starr for being NIE sponsor


THANK YOU SEN. STARR -- Students in Linda Perry's fourth-grade classroom at Troy School recently presented Sen. Bob Starr with a rainbow color wheel made with newspapers that they created in their classroom, thanking him for being the sponsor of the newspapers they received every Monday throughout the school year, through the Caledonian-Record/Orleans County Record's Newspapers In Education Program. The students cut out newspapers into the shape of an envelope and glued it to a piece of cardstock. They then painted each piece of newspaper in rainbow colors and wrapped letters in newspaper to spell Sen. Starr's name and glued them to the wheel. To show their artistic talent, students made origami out of newspaper to place on the top of the wheel. For a finishing touch they added Sen. Starr's picture in the center of the wheel. During the school year, students read the featured serialized stories in the newspaper and answer the comprehension questions during their Reading Workshop class. They learn a lot of new vocabulary words, improve their comprehension and increase their fluency with these stories. They also learn about their community around them by reading other stories in the newspaper. Making the presentation to Sen. Starr are: front row from left, Bryer Provencher, Emma Deslandes, Kloey Descheneau, Lahna Descheneau, Connor Brown, Gracie Gauvin, Adrien Tetreault and Elizabeth Booth; back row, Sen. Starr, Manny Ste. Marie, Brendon Elie, Riley Sanville, Travis Pepin, Ben Bouchard, Mariah Bacon, Emma Rose Chaput, Lydia Ste. Marie and fourth-grade teacher Linda Perry.
