Students in Patricia King’s fourth-grade class at Bowling Green Elementary School have been selected as Kidsday Reporters for the Newsday’s Kidsday Class of the Week.

Along with Kidsday editor Pat Mullooly, students wrote and edited articles to be featured in Newsday’s Class of the Week on June 15 and June 17-22. Mr. Mullooly visited Ms. King’s classroom to help the young reporters brainstorm ideas for their articles as well as to advise them on problems sent in by other Kidsday classrooms. Students were asked to come up with five solutions for each problem presented by Mr. Mullooly. 

As part of the project, four students also had the opportunity to attend the New York Tennis Open at Nassau Coliseum on February 9. Students Platonas Demosthenous, Phoebe Falk, Daniel Guevara and Ella Jacobs had the opportunity to interview tennis pros Andy Roddick and Jim Courier.

The district looks forward to seeing these talented reporters appear in Newsday in June!
