The fifth graders at Ensworth took a special trip to Tom Joy School Tuesday to meet new friends and share their love for reading. Each marking period the fifth graders visit Tom Joy with the primary focus of reading good books. Tuesday was “Get Acquainted Day”, where each fifth grader from Ensworth is paired with a 1st grader from Tom Joy. The fifth graders made “All About Me” books before going and shared these with their new friends. They also read books with them and did some Halloween themed drawings. Between visits the students send pictures and letters to the Tom Joy students to help foster relationships. Throughout the year the fifth grade collects gently used uniform clothing for the Tom Joy students and books to add to their classroom libraries.
