Pupils to celebrate end of enrichment project
RANDALLSTOWN - Pupils in three gifted and talented classes at Randallstown Elementary School will hold a literacy celebration June 5 to mark the end of a yearlong enrichment project of research, reading and writing.
Third-graders wrote and illustrated folk tales in their portion of the project, while fourth-graders read a book about the history of Randallstown and made a time capsule. Fifth-graders conducted historical reading during their project, which involved choosing and authenticating an object older than their parents.
