High School Students Share Self-Made Books

Students taking Advanced Spanish at Riverhead High School recently visited Phillips Avenue Elementary School to connect with younger students. The high schoolers wrote and illustrated fables as part of their final class project. They visited Phillips Avenue to share their stories with students in bilingual and ENL classes.

Students at all grade levels enjoyed the experience of connecting with others within the District. One high school student said the most memorable moment was “just talking to the kids. They seemed so excited to have us there, and it was pretty humbling.”

Another student’s favorite part of the day was “making the little kids smile and making their day better by just reading a little book that I made!”

The visit to Phillips Avenue Elementary School helped foster a love for reading, while building a stronger sense of school community within Riverhead.
