Last Wednesday 50 MCSIS 5th grade students got a Valentine’s Day surprise: a visit from Register Star Publisher Mark Vinciguerra, reporter Amanda Purcell, and Hudson Fire Chief Anthony DeMarco.
The guests were part of School Life Media’s Junior Journalism program, part of the MC Smith Intermediate School’s fifth-grade literacy curriculum this year. The program, founded by Peter Meyer, uses stories from the New York Times and Register Star to introduce the students to the world of journalism. The students learn how to read an article in the paper, take efficient notes, and how to write their own story over the course of the 15-week program. Purcell and DeMarco came to Mrs. Diane Kipp’s and Mrs. Debeorah Suafoah’s classes as part of the class lesson reviewing the RS front page story of the State Street fire last January.

SLM is grateful to the Hudson River Bank and Trust Foundation for its generous support.

I should point out that these are just two of seven classes of fifth-graders taking part in the Junior Journalism program at MCSIS this year. Our many thanks to principal Mark Brenneman and all the fifth-grade teachers for their wonderful support. –peter meyer
