Third grade students in Cinzia Emmerich's art classes at Chatterton have been designing their own World Cup soccer balls. They learned about the history of the match ball from 1930 to 2022. Each World Cup ball has a name and is unique to each tournament. "Every student is creating their own unique ball by adding patterns, color and giving it a clever name," added Emmerich. "I can’t wait to see their final creations on our class soccer field."

The multipurpose room at Chatterton School transformed into Starbooks Café for fifth grade reading classes on Nov. 16.

This is the first time reading teacher Deborah Cain organized a Book Tasting activity and she went all out.

Place settings, flameless candles and faux flowers adored the tableclothed tables while classical music played softly in the background. As students perused books and munched on their snacks, Cain passed around lemonade and water in plastic lidded cups with green-striped straws.

Students were assigned to tables with classmates in their same book club, which is categorized by reading levels.

“The book tasting is an engaging way to give students an opportunity to meet the members of their book club and sample a variety of books selected specially for them to decide what interests them as something they can read and hold interesting book talks on,” explained Cain.
