Kidsday Class of the Week
5th Grade students in Ms. Weeks and Ms. Gray's 2016-17 class were the Class of the Week in Newsday in August 2017.
Any class that wants to participate contacts Newsday and lets them know about the wonderful things that their class is doing. When accepted, Newsday sends the information to Mr. Pat Mullooly, the "Kidsday Guy." Mr. Mullooly comes in to work with the class several times during the year. He is an incredibly dynamic individual. The students get t-shirts, reporters badges, make a Facebook video, and several go on the celebrity interview in Manhattan.
The class brainstorms article ideas and Mr. Mullooly rejects or accepts them.
The kids were proud to be honored in this way and had loads of fun.
