Fourth graders in Tami Koller’s class at Aquebogue Elementary School in the Riverhead Central School District will soon be published journalists. During the past month, the students have been working with Patrick Mullooly from Newsday’s Kidsday to draft articles that will be published in September. The students wrote on a variety of topics, including apple picking on the East End and their favorite restaurants. In addition, several groups of students were selected to write articles after touring the Bronx Zoo’s new dinosaur exhibit, taking in a Cirque du Soleil show and interviewing author Chris Grabenstein.
